Description

Automatically created from a GPX file - 2019-02-04_1011 Raw.gpx

With Isaac Walker, planned route together and took turn in leading legs on the route - poor visibility white out conditions from 700m+ requiring proper planning of leg, walking on bearing and pacing.

Ice Axe and crampons taken but not required due to terrain and snow condition.

Area : The Cairngorms

The Cairngorms are ‘a little piece of the arctic in Scotland’ according to the SMC Munros Guide and the area contains many of the tallest peaks in the East Highlands. Ben Macdui (1309m), Cairn Gorm (1244m) and Braeriach (1296) are probably three of the better known and the whole area is full of steep corries and high plateaux. Access to the mountains is typically from Aviemore or Braemar.
