Back To The Future
18th January 2017
For some reason our particular part of the internet got broken yesterday. Upshot of this was that the blog homepage showed the last blog entry as 01/01/1970 – the era of flared trousers, demi-perms (even for those of the male persuasion!) & tank tops – when the internet was probably something trawlermen used for landing haddock.
Anyway. The jolly helpful chaps with beards and lumberjack shirts at Strut Digital worked their magic overnight and got it all back to the future for us for today.
So, a bit of a catch up.
The thaw continues of course.
(Above) The base of Easy Gully, the Post Face in Coire Ardair yesterday, 17th Jan. The burn has just broken through the snow where the gully begins to narrow but, given the sustained thaw, the overall cover is holding up pretty well here above about 750m. Other gullies are narrower though. The photo was taken from atop of a pile of avalanche debris. To the right, a waterfall descending Centre Post.
Visibility was very poor on Tuesday.
(Above) Much clearer today with vastly better visibility. This is Coire Dubh with recent cornice debris in the centre of the shot. Any aspect with East on it (NE, E, SE) has much more old snow cover than elsewhere.
