(Above) Pinnacle Buttress and the Post Face of Coire Ardair today. The principal low grade gully lines are wide and complete with a good depth of coarse-grained old snow, some of which is old avalanche debris.
Random fact #38: the temperature of the water in the lochan was measured at exactly 2 degrees C. at lunchtime today.
(Above) Had someone been around to witness it, would have been quite a trouser-filling moment when that lot came rumbling down a few days ago! Still quite large sections of cornice remain in place above this broad south-facing gully adjacent to the lochan in the upper part of Coire Ardair. gm
