Coire Ardair & the Inner Coire
7th March 2017
(Above) A trip up into the Inner Coire today passing Pinnacle Buttress, Easy Gully and part of the Post Face of Coire Ardair – all pictured. Quite wintry-looking but with even more snow on the way overnight and throughout Wednesday. Very light snow showers at times today with a little drifting as the wind picked up; even some trails of spindrift coming off a few of the crags in the afternoon.
(Above) The single brief (really brief!) appearance of a shaft of sunlight had me scrambling for the camera! A view towards ‘The Window’, with a pair of winter hill walkers just in shot en-route to the top of this well-known and distinctive looking col. Still relatively lean build up of snow in the vicinity of ‘The Window’ though this will no doubt improve after the anticipated wintry weather kicks in overnight.
There’s going to be a lot of new snow and windslab in all the above places during the next 24 hours, and most will be topped off with weak cornices.
