Sron na Lairige - 10 March

With the promised sunshine being delivered in abundance we set off through the Chalamain Gap for Braeriach, again. This time it was the snow on the ground that caused the problems. Despite the constant wind and persistent spindrift the powder snow remained too deep for walking at any pace. We reached Sron na Lairige after 6 hours pretty hard walking to see the summit of Braeriach clouding over, a little earlier than forecast. The only sensible thing to do was to turn round which, perhaps surprisingly, we did to reach the car just as darkness was falling four hours later.

Not reaching Braeriach was really neither here nor there on a such a glorious day.
