Carlavin Hill and Molls Cleuch Dod from near Megget Stone East of Talla Reservoir.

The snow on the N facing Molls Cleuch was much more plentiful than on Broad Law to the north. The 1 in 5 road above Talla Linnfoots was still blocked with snow from two weeks ago. This has now been cleared. This was a nice little tour worth a return visit.

White Coomb from Grey Mare's Tail NTS carpark, via SW flank of Watch Knowe, across the plateau onto Upper Tarnberry and up to the summit. Descent along SE ridge over Upper Tarnberry and down to Moffat Water
:: Weather Conditions
Superb - nice and sunny, brisk wind on tops
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
Scoured tussock on west facing slopes but powder in sheltered spots and soft slab elsewhere. Great conditions! Saw full depth slide off the ridge connecting White Coomb to Carrifran Gans

Set off at 1pm. Initially light blizzard, but gave way to clear and some sunshine.

Track well filled in. Recent heavy vehicle tracks giving good base for fresh snow. Good gliding on the way back in outward trail.

Green Lowther from layby on A702, 1km SW of Nether Fingland, via Stowgill Dod and Riccart Law Rig. Descent via Horsegrain Dod and lower part of Riccart Cleuch
:: Weather Conditions
Blue skies and less wind than forecast. Cool northerly on top. FL at or near the road.
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
Reasonable cover from the car. Plenty of grass/tussock sticking through snow varying from soft (mostly) with some icy patches. Decided not to do Lowther Hill as the eastern flanks of Horsegrain Dod looked like a more continuous descent than further west.
