With the mild temperatures of the last week the conditions on the Ben were slowly deteriorating and with it being the weekend we thought we would give winter a miss for a couple of days and decided to go cragging at Ardnamurchan. This is one of my favourite places in Scotland and I can't really do it justice in a sentence.

We headed over on Saturday morning and arrived at the crag for lunch. We bagged four routes before it got dark and headed back to the car. We woke up this morning to a bitter wind which made the air temperature feel about freezing. We waited around for a couple of hours to see if things warmed up but finally cut our losses at about 10am and headed home.
Me on Gretta Gabbro.
Things have been busy on the Ben over the weekend and reports are coming in that conditions are improving as the temperatures drop and can only get better over the week.
