Gorms update

I have been at the lodge for the last couple of days on an induction. I was based at the lodge the whole time, but others have been out and about.

Wednesday was a great day to be out. All the gully lines were in great condition and there was some snow on the buttresses from Tuesday. Folks climbed many gullies and team made ascents of hidden chimney and the haston line as well.

Thursday saw the end of the world. The temp. went up dramatically today stripping a lot of snow with the high winds and rain. Teams out said that there was alot of fresh wet snow at a 1000m throughout the day and that it was snowing at the corrie floor as they left at 3pm. The temp. is due to come down again over the next few days which might help sort out some of the wet snow. More high winds and exciting weather is forecast so keep your eyes on it if your heading out.
