I had a short day out in the Cairngorms today with a distinctly icy theme! Headed into Coire an t-Sneachda before climbing up not the plateau and traversing Cairngorm coming back down via windy ridge. It was busy on the slopes and in the corries. The snow certainly has frozen though with a lot of […]
