Born to be mild
14th February 2009
(Above) The RAF came to play today. Misty for most of the time and a little mild. Certainly could do with a freeze up.
Routes done today: Smith’s Gully, Last Post, and Centre Post (I think). The guys on Last Post topped out at 1.45pm pretty much as a pair commenced Centre Post – who spent some time weighing things up en route. The Last Post ascensionists stayed well to the left (looking up) on the final pitch to avoid distinctly questionable deeper slab.
Good stability in many places below about 950m but lingering weaknesses higher up. Some very large cornices in some places at present.
Ski-touring remains good but the Carn Liath plateau cover is not complete. The Sron a Ghoire side is very good – a tour from Moy descending by Sron a Ghoire to Aberarder would be a sound choice. Mild for a time so we can expected the snow to diminish down low.
