Stormy on Stob Ban!

Day 2 with Scott and we headed up the glen to the East of Stob Ban, we spent some time looking at snow belays and talked about the pros and cons of each one. We headed up on to the east ridge to head up to the summit but the winds were strong and gusting which didn't bode well for our intended route so we headed back down and looked at rock belays and anchor selection for quick easy belays.
It snowed for most of the day with strong southerly winds which was putting a lot of snow down in sheltered locations. The snow started to fall harder as the afternoon went on and the snow line dropped to about 500m, we were both pretty soaked by the time we got back to the car and I'm looking forward to a drier day tomorrow.
