Cornices – Monday 21st Jan ’08

21st January 2008

(Above) There are a few of these bad boys around at the moment. This one is about the size of a car and there are many larger ones hanging over steep N through E to S aspects, corrie rims and gully tops in particular. With rain and mild temperatures forecasted for Tuesday many of the younger ones will collapse and put a high loading on the slopes below, many of which are laden with deep windslab.

Above: The Post Face today (Monday). Coire Ardair has been pretty quiet of late. Snow stability has been pretty poor as 4 climbers found out in Raeburn’s Gully on Saturday; fortunately no injuries.
