Fiacaill Ridge and white out conditions

Robert, Ruth and I went scrambling along the Fiacaill Ridge today. There was plenty of snow and on the Coire an Lochain side where we traversed, it was mainly scoured with just the occasional deep drift. The rime on the rocks was almost growing in front of our eyes and it all looked very wintry.

When we reached the plateau, it was to find very poor visibility so lots of navigation practice to get back to Point 1141 and the Coire Cas ridge.
By the time we got down, hair had frozen to hats, hats had frozen to helmets and helmets had frozen to hoods and goggles.
