View towards Ballater under lowering cloud
A good day today with the classic smooth continuous 2 to 4 knot climbs from below 3000 ft right up to above 14000 ft. Bob S T4, Denis C 370, Jane M 118, John H HXH, Dave B & Nick H 315 all getting to Braemar and beyond, Chris R getting to Lochnagar at 10000 ft. Climbing above 14000 Ft was tricky as the wind increased to 60 knots. Loads of photos and gourmet updates to follow, but many of us are off for an early night with the possibility of very good conditions in the morning.
