Deep cold

Today has been the coldest day I can remember in my year and a bit of working at the Clachaig. I don't own a thermometer, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's dipped to -10 Celsius. The weather has been completely calm and clear all day, but the frost hasn't let up. Elliot's Downfall touched down yesterday but is a way away from being climbable yet.

I didn't get out on the hill today, as I twisted my ankle slightly on my adventure of the day before and wished to give it a rest. However, with a continuing forecast of clear skies, low winds, no snow, and fierce frost, I hope to head into the mountains tomorrow to find an avalanche-safe ridge to climb!
