With JPM club. Ken, Alan, Batosz and Svet. Intention had been to do An Stuc alone from a different starting point but Ken decided plan B from the NTS car park was best even if it meant not being able to do An Stuc. Lots of snow! Lovely. Cold though. I had 5 layers on incl jacket. Cloud was low and we didn't see anything. In fact, we literally couldn't see anything at the top and Ken decided we should turn back rather than try to reach the actual summit. It was windy and it it really got up on the way down which resulted in some hunkering down. Crampons paid for themselves!! Crusty surface on snow plus water ice on the path. Fairly short day in the end but given we only did one hill, it was relatively slow going.
