Conditions-Watch begins!

There is no snow as yet in the glen, but MWIS predicts that 'showers will give snow on highest Scottish summits' during a sharp drop in temperature later on in the week. The long game of keeping a keen eye on developing winter conditions has begun.

Last year the first snowfall that settled was on the 3rd of October, and within a week or two snow was beginning to accumulate above 850m and everything was starting to ice up. By the 30th of October there was ice everywhere; sadly it didn't last!

Not long to go now before we can pick up ice axes and crampons and resume REAL climbing.
