(Above) Ice on some rocky bosses and easy grade ground in Coire Chriochairein. The ice shown in the lower part of the shot is at 700m. In the right conditions this little but atmospheric corrie can be a good winter skills training ground. Care is required when stability is poor as many of the slopes are regular avalanche paths – even low angled ground can be iffy as the run-outs from the avalanches are long and debris tips deep.
