Beinn Bhan and NW conditions again.

I was in Corie na Poite on Beinn Bhan Today. The first bit of silver tear to the first terrace is there but thinnish. It is not at all there above.
We has a look at Mad Hatters gully but bailed half way up the crux pitch as it was streaming with water (think down my arm, down my torso, leg and filling up my boots).
Snow is soggy and without layers all the way up the mountain. It will re freeze to good neve where it survives the rain that fell today. Freeing level was way way above the tops today and there has been a massive snow loss, but the turf is still frozen.
