Sron na Lairig.

I met up with Chris Sleight this morning from the BBC who was looking to get out on the hill for a piece to be aired on the BBC radio program, Out of Doors. With the freezing level above the summits and the weather set to get worse later in the day we opted for a quick mountaineering trip up Sron na Lairig hoping that the northerly aspect would be holding onto the snow.
It wasn't in the best of winter conditions but it still gave a good day out, with the last 100-150m holding onto some ice and the turf was still frozen. It was a relatively dry day in Glencoe with just one or two short periods of drizzle, so the thaw hasn't been that aggressive, leaving a lot of snow above 800m, ready for the next freeze.

A happy man!

The final few metres to the top.
