Some visibility again!
9th February 2017
It’s been a claggy couple of day at Creag Meagaidh, clearer today but very cold on the tops.
A very snowy looking Coire nan Gall with the sunlight catching cross loaded aspects on the crags. Accumulations are quite variable – the coire backwall to the right of the shot which is pretty much bang on East has a scoured upper section where a cornice often forms, now bare rock at plateau level – more noticeable in photo below.
A rather distant shot, apologies. I was on my way round to the Eastern edge of our patch when the vista appeared and as I don’t often see from this location ( with The Window framed by the lower col of Na Cnapanan) thought it worth taking – highlights the quite variable cover; deep in places, at lower elevations, with upper slopes to the Window still devoid of snow.
The homeward run, on return from Coire a Bhein – a very clear snowline at around 500m
