More wintery than winter

Andy & Brian want to do a Cuillin Traverse, but first I insist that they endure some fantastic Scottish scrambling conditions on the mainland.

The monk of doom had forecasted a horrendous weather forecast today and despite trying to put them off, the guys fully embraced the forecast.  Couldn't believe our luck to climb Curved Ridge in the sun.  

My heart sank when I saw how much snow was still left on the exit slopes around Crowberry Tower but a bit of exploration work, soon found us on the summit - just in time for a wintery squall.

I honestly can't remember the last time I even contemplated taking goggles with me in May, but every day is a school day.
