A little snow fell down to sea level last night and today was a cold, bright day. Thankfully the wind dropped away quickly after the storm yesterday and it was quite calm. Some crags on Ben Nevis were rimed up and Kenny and Guy climbed Sorcerer, a great looking route on Creag Coire na Ciste with a crack pitch much like the Magic Crack in Coire an t'Sneachda. Ice has been forming quickly in the cold snap with plenty of water in the ground to seep out of the cracks and down drainage lines. Stob Coire nan Lochan was not so well frozen or rimed up but after tomorrow nothing will be as warm and wet weather moves in.
