Soft & wet snow
19th December 2019
(Above) Coire Ardair track – unfortunately a bit of change from yesterday with milder temps producing soft, wet snow at all levels.
(Above) Pinnacle Buttress and the Post Face
(Above) The Inner Coire and the slopes to the ‘Window’. Recent early cover always mostly cosmetic – is now sparse.
I was not alone – one man and his dog topping out on the saddle.
Below is a quick run around various conditions today:
(Above) Inner Coire crags – early season ‘thin’…
(Above) Lt -Rt. SouthPost / Centre Post / North Post . The diagonal ramps of Staghorn leading to ‘The Pipes’ (Rt of photo) are largely devoid of any significant build up.
(Above) Half way up ‘Easy Gully’ and some ice to be found – on ‘Last Post’ quantity & quality as yet unknown…..
(Above) Raeburn’s Gully – centre photo. Complete but narrow
(Above). Upper slopes on Cairn Liath – now scoured
