Coire an Lochain and Coire an t-Sneachda

Ron and I went into Coire an Lochain this morning and encountered only two other climbers, Mark and Alan, a couple of ptarmigans and the Easter Bunny.
We climbed up the steep slopes of the corrie to Y Gully and the snow was great all the way up except for the last two metres - the cornice!
The sun shone and there was very little wind though we were surprised just how cold it felt when the sun briefly disappeared behind passing clouds.
After stopping to watch Mark and Alan climbing up The Vent, we walked over to Coire Domhain for a look at the snowholes then climbed down the Goat Track and back up Central Gully to Pygmy Ridge again.
Happy Easter!
