Much Spring!

14th March 2016

Much spring in the air – if not the step!

I went for a stomp around at the Eastern end of our area today – to the seldom visited Coire a Bhein

Some old cornices hanging around, although not too gnarly on these N & NE aspects – bigger with more East

    Has any ice has survived around the bottom of the post face (e.g. South Post Direct)? Looks like a lot was lost from Sunday to Monday (on the snow front anyway)?

    Thanks for the feedback. I am like many others very appreciative and on days like yesterday very envious of the work you are doing. I’ve also met you in Coire Ardair when the weather hasn’t been so nice, so have great respect for your commitment. Thanks again.
