Zig Zags in winter

What a mega day out yesterday was. One of then days that make you think you should do more walking and not to be look to climb all the time. We head down to Glencoe for the day to go up the Zig Zags on Gearr Aonach. The walk in was worryingly warm as it could have been done in a t-shirt. The snow was soft under foot all the way up with water running under the snow too. Once on the ridge was in the cloud so not much to look for the day. At the top on Bian got a bit moist and bumped into Neil how had solo Dorsal Arete and heading back down. Dropping off Bian to Sgreamhach we came out of the clouds to Blue sky and amazing views!! We had back down down into the lost valley with a shot down climb with the longest bum slide I have ever done (500M at High speed). This mean the first past of the walk of fun but some it was onto poor snow with hidden holes under it. But still a great day. Will have to head back into to do Beinn Fhada as the ridge looks great! Winter just keens giving. Tho today is sadly a uni day.
