March was a varied month, much better than February on the whole. We have loads of snow now where we need it on the faces and gullies of the mountains but the sunny side on the mountain has thawed a bit. It looks like winter will last a while this year.

1Early March and the weather cleared for a while and I had some good days out.

John on Stob Coire nan Lochan






Then it thawed and got wet like here on Gear Aonach in Glencoe











Later in the month things definitely improved


Like here on Ben Nevis the Lads climbed No4 Gully then it cleared on the way to the top.
