(Above) Looking towards The Pinnacle and the Post Face of Coire Ardair. White caps on Lochan a Choire today. Just a dusting of new snow over the tops – above about 1000m – with really punchy showers of rain at lower altitudes. Oh, and the wind! Strong, with sudden and quite prolonged squalls which challenged your stability especially near the lochan.
(Above) L to R: Bellevue Buttress, Raeburn’s Gully and The Pinnacle. The squally downdrafts created by the steep walls of the crags seemed to make the lochan boil before they ripped across to the opposite side. Cue cameraman bracing for impact!
As you can see we’re still desperately short of snow.
