Debris from a minor full depth avalanche in Coire Dubh noted this morning. Just visible near the centre skyline. Very steeply inclined rocky slabs on an ENE aspect. Estimated release during the late afternoon yesterday. Approx dimensions 10-15m across and running out 125m.
The Post Face has innumerable steep benches and ledges with isolated areas of snow that can produce similarly sized events. However, predicting the release of full depth avalanches is, for the time being, some way beyond our knowledge base and skill set.
