(Above) Passed by the rescue box beside the distinctive large boulder which lies below Raeburn’s Gully in Coire Ardair. A not very salubrious ‘howff” (in this instance a make-shift shelter) is to be found beneath the boulder. It’s OK if you’re desperate but tends to fill with snow unless the mouth of the howff is sealed off.
Mild and wet overnight with some wet snow instability + weakening collapse-prone cornices. Much cooler during the day on Sunday with a few snow showers.
