:: Route(s)
None. Walked the length of the layby on the A82 by Loch Lochy!
:: Route Grade
Not Applicable
:: Weather Conditions
Unbroken sunshine, temps above freezing on the hills above inversion, but very dry air so snow stayed hard except on sunlit aspects in the afternoon.
:: Climbing Conditions
General overview photos of Meall na Teanga from the A82 layby overlooking Loch Lochy between the Letterfinlay and Corriegour Hotels.

Posted them in here as surface conditions probably more appropriate for climbing than steep backcountry ski descents!

Ben Udlaidh (Bridge of Orchy)

Ice Screw - III (4)
South Gully IV (4)
:: Route Grade
Not Applicable
:: Weather Conditions
Cloudy more or less all day with freezing level hovering around the top of the mountain (800m) Light snow on and off all day
:: Climbing Conditions
Ice variable ranging from excellent blue water ice to cruddy white aerated snow ice. The majority of the upper wall routes in condition with most of the classics clearly having seen ascents in the past week.
West Buttress has some routes in.
Well worth the relatively easy walk in providing the forecast mild weather this week doesn't strip the ice too much
