Cornices

Large cornices loom over many NE to S aspects at the moment. Don’t often see big ones over Centre Post but these are conspicuously large. Loud and ominous rumblings were heard emanating from the Inner Coire today, nothing seen but was probably more cornice trundling down.

Big snow on its way on Friday. Stability was questionable in many places on Thursday and will get a whole lot worse. The avalanches could be big and run out to some distance.
