Cornice collapse central
8th April 2016
(Above) More cornice action elsewhere in the coire yesterday. The largest, gnarliest chunks of cornice fell down on 28th March triggering a dry slab avalanche: crownwall still just visible top left of photo below the cornice line.
(Above) The Inner Coire of Coire Ardair today with The Window, the obvious col, prominent in the shot. The largest, widest fan of cornice debris in the photo the result of cornices falling down from above ‘Cinderella’, the grade 1 gully, yesterday.
Wintry forecast overnight and into Saturday with persistent snow showers. Freezing level projected to be 100m by 9am, rising to 750m by late afternoon.
