(Above) Sron a Ghoire’s northern flank has been rippled with drifted snow and has cross loaded minor terrain features from opposite directions. Easterly winds earlier this week (blowing from the left) and more recently by Westerlies from the right. Note the re-entrant in the middle of the shot with its small cornice line, and drifting snow from the opposite direction. Another wind shift expected tomorrow with winds from the East again.
(Above) The sun did come out at times and induced a little rollerball activity on S and SE aspects below about 750m. Bottom of shot. The thin soft surface snow lost cohesion due to solar warming. The deeper deposits of snow below this altitude are showing signs of consolidation.
