Crackin Thermal Inversion

A cracking day with a hung thermal inversion. What looked like an innocuous pair of Corbetts on the map was actually a brilliant walk. They are perfectly placed in the middle of all the good stuff.

After lugging the weight of the drone and kit up there, please take time to look at the footage:

Great video. Looks a good pair of hills even without the glorious inversion.

P.S. I feel your pain regards dragging the drone up the hills - my legs are suffering today from same problem :)

Fabulous! Thanks for posting that :)
Inversions are always terrific - the drone really gives a different aspect altogether.

Astonishing how much snow melt there is compared to just a few weeks ago on Lui. Seems only last week I was looking at that great walk report by Alteknacker from his walk at the end of February.

Smashing vid in great conditions. The drones definitely provide an unusual perspective.

I was looking at a similar sort of inversion on Tuesday from much further West, and, I confess, I was pleased for once not to be in it, so that I had the views all day at every elevation!

BTW I had similar battles with soft snow - knee, sometimes thigh deep break-throughs
