Hard mixed routes have lots of ice in the cracks and thick rime on them so they will be quite difficult at the moment. Icy mixed climbs are good though.
The big easy gullies mostly have big cornices on them. Nobody has been up or down Number Three Gully or Number Four Gully for a while by the look of it and their cornices are pretty big. The best descents are by the Red Burn, Coire Leis or Ledge Route.
We have a bit of a thaw forecast over the weekend and then drier weather next week with frosty nights and warm days. I think the ice we have currently will take a good long while to melt away and the snow cover will be here for a few months yet.
