Lochnagar - February 2013

 Skining up in the murk  Starting to look like it might clear  The cliffs of Lochnagar starting to emerge   Views coming and going    Wow!  Heading toward the summit approach  Lochnagar cliffs  A bit rocky on the plateau  Some large cornices to be reckoned with  Heading towards the summit on foot - too many rocky sections to skin   Looking back towards Meikle Pap     Clouds  On the summit of Cac Carn Mor  Summit views  Other walkers approaching   Checking out some of the climbs  Heading down from Cruidhe Crom  Perfect snow, firm and grippy but not too icy  Mike descending from Cruidhe Crom      Fiona   Fiona  Trying to get as far as possible before the skins go back on  Still moving...   Skis get you a lot further    Hare in the distance  After a short skin uphill it's all downhill    On skis it's still possible to link snow patches back to the far end on the forest  This was pushing it though, the path was a lot faster  The path back to the car
