For Peter's final day, we decided to go for a journey and headed up Stob Ban, which translates as white peak, which it definitely is at the moment. We had a thaw last night and into the early hours of today, which stripped some of the lower-lying snow and saturated the snowpack to about 800m. Once this re-freezes, it will firm up well. Above 800m the snow was much drier and consolidating nicely.
We reached the summit via the mountain's east ridge, where we were treated to some brilliant views over towards Ben Nevis, the eastern Mamores and towards Glencoe.
After reaching the summit, we descended the north ridge, which features a brilliant section of exposed ridge, before descending rocky steps. Whilst descending, the weather closed in, bringing with it clouds and snow.
