Coire Ardair – ‘Post Face’

Coire a Chriochairein (Stone Coire)

SW facing boulder clad slopes of aptly named Stone Coire
This last spell of cold weather with its prevaling ENE and Northerly winds have given us only a dusting of new snow on the Meggie ranges. With few SW or Southerly facing aspects above 900m on out patch it has resulted in little by way of significant hazard.
The bould strewn and aptly named Stone Coire with no base layer one of the few recipient SW facing slopes. Isolated pockets only at the top end on other multi-aspect slopes of the main Coire Ardair above.
