A thoroughly enjoyable climb through some testing conditions. First Munro in the snow and I have to say it made this a really superb day out.

Almost at the cloud base but still a superb view

Quite a few following us but only 1 set of footprints ahead to follow


Unfortunately no summit photos as the cloud closed in and the wind was blowing us about a fair bit.

This section was much more enjoyable on the way down!

Well done on keeping going if you're not used to the snow. My first Munro I think, way back in 1988.
