Matt and Laurent went to a very snowy Stob Coire Nan Lochain today and climbed Boomerang Arete (III) under heavy snow. The snow and ice was a bit cruddy lower down but still so deep it almost didnt matter! As the angle eased at the top of the arete they crossed Boomerang gully to get another pitch of II out of the awesome day. Teams were out on Twisting Grooves and Gully (no ice, lots of soft snow), Scabbard Chimney, Ordinary route and, of course, Dorsal. There were several weak layers low down in the snow pack and most people were keeping clear of the gullys (which would have been a wade) and thee were lots and lots of sun balls from solar thawing on the west side of the coire. Al and team were climbing in the same area, more here:
