Mess of Pottage

Campbell and i had a good winters day in the corries today climbing The Opening Break. Poor viz and lots of snow underfoot made moving around and finding your way entertaining. There is about 1 to 2ft of snow in the bottom of the corrie in places, snow shoes or skis would be a good shout. It took us 2hrs to get to the bottom of the route.
Climbing wise, cracks not that icy, turf.... well covered and frozen, lots of hoar/rime. Alot of consolidated snow in scoured areas, not far off neve which is a good sign for the rest of the season.
