BBC weather report for Glencoe yesterday was "sun ", so Alex and I set off for what I believed to be the 2 easiest Munro's to do in the Etive range, we left at 07.00 arriving at the Glencoe ski centre at 09.15. The ski centre was busy obviously a clue for us (there must be lots of snow on the slopes), we started at the car park climbing pretty much underneath the chair lifts, then through lots of snow and ice once we got on to the higher slopes, still no sign of the sun but plenty of snow and low cloud, these 2 hills possibly down to the ice and snow and the scramble getting on to Creise were without doubt a lot of work, the only disappointment was we never got to see the views due to low cloud
