Fun in the sun...

A quick trip north to Glen Coe on Monday saw Craig head up the Zig Zags on Gear Aonach for a quick hit in the snow to the 'Hurt Lochan'.

Looking down the Zig Zag's to Glen Coe
The sun was out but the snow stripped from the route until he got onto the ridge proper.  It was a little wet until topping out onto the ridge to be greeted with the sun..who'd have thunk it?

What a place to emerge onto
Thanks Mark...
Speaking to a couple on their way to Bidean via the Lost Valley -  he told them, "that's a bad idea" - and another on their way to Twisting Gully as the evidence of avalanches and cornice collapse (and rising temperatures) was everywhere to see.

A very snowy lochan
Positively Alpine!
Some lunch in the loch, photos galore then a walk back down to come home all too early for Craig.

The business end
A supper solo day in the sun and sugary snow; not nice for climbing tho.

Favourite place on earth
