After a couple of days of full on thaw with heavy rain, the temperature dropped today and we got some fresh snow down to 400m this morning. I had a quick look at the North Face of Ben Nevis (from a distance) and saw that Point Five Gully and Hadrian's Wall Direct are still complete so we did not lose everything up there. As is often the way, Ben Nevis delivers the goods.

Take a look at the SAIS Lochaber Blog for a close up picture from today of Point Five Gully, Tower Scoop and Smith's Route. It was very windy though and the fresh snow was just being blown around all over the place. After a calmer weekend it looks windy and mixed again next week. It is only January after all!

Happy New Year!
