Cairngorm: In search of the "perfect" conditions!

The weather is certainly playing games at the minute, today has seen two aborted attempts to get on “real” rock at Brin and Tom Riach. In contrast Friday was pretty good with sunshine from start to finish at Cairngorm.
It was a fun day and the mountain was just about skiable anywhere which added to the fun, though despite what has been said on the official web site and few over excited reviews on the Web, the snow was heavy with a bit of crust, and not quite “perfect”, but still good enough.
The corries looked very white and indeed to be honest it was pretty difficult to spot any features from the car park. Still stuff to be done no doubt. If the snow on Friday was anything to go by though it very much needs a little thaw and a big freeze. Possibly next weekend?
Though with only a week to go until my Spain climbing trip I am keen to get some time in on rock. The wall is wearing a little thin at the minute, but still at least it’s dry.
Still messing around with the camera and video package and this little offering for some reason refused to upload the soundtrack. So hum the Birdie Song if you watch it and you might get the full effect.
