Martin & Sarah climbed a Corbett on the drive up to the meet, on Thursday.
On Friday, the group woke to new snowfall down to about 200m. Martin & Sarah climbed the Munro Meall Ghaordhie whilst John, having now suspended his winter Munro bagging for another year until next winter, climbed a Graham.
On Sunday, there were azure skies and Sarah and Martin climbed the Corbett Beinn Chuirn, near Beinn Laoigh (Ben Lui). With no-one to share the trail breaking on any Grahams, John returned home early.
On Saturday, members woke to fresh snow on the cars in the hut car park. Martin and Sarah drove as far as possible up the minor road to where the Ben Lawers visitor centre used to be and then took advantage of another party’s trail through the deep snow to reach the summit of the Munro Meall nan Tarmachan. Due to the low visibility they decided not to attempt to follow the convoluted ridge westwards and returned. John attempted a Graham via an intermediary, sub-Graham hill, but met trackless deep heather which resulted in an “endless” sequence of post-holing through knee to waist deep snow drifts and with no-one else to share the hard work of breaking trail retreated after the intermediary hill.
