Sgor Gaoith - January 2016


 Heading up the track, skins and skis on after about 3km of walking   Mullach Clach a Bhlair  Skinning upwards   Big snow lip/cornice feature. It would be rather bad to ski off this in poor visibility!       Approaching the summit. There's something about Sgor Gaoith and poor visibility.   Summit views, or not as it turned out!  Skis off briefly to remove the skins   It's all a bit white. We couldn't see much for part of the descent but the snow was lovely.    Looking down the Allt a' Chrom-alltain     Out of the clag but the snow is a bit heavy now      Fiona in the clouds          Fiona traversing on the track. It's packed down and icy so makes for a fast way down.
