‘Pops’ at last – things looking up!
23rd December 2012
Visiting Observer Mike Austin today enjoying the ‘Full Meggie’ – en route to pit site
It’s amazing what rain to all levels can do to help promote a few ‘ Pop’ outs….
Pit site today was at the fracture line profile of an overnight event on a steep NE aspect above 900m. High on the backside of Carin Liath – saturated layers within snowpack failing with ‘gentle persuasion’ from natural triggering cornice collapse
Fracture line profile NE aspect 920m – Cairn Liath
Our thanks to Mountain Equipment and Goretex today – rain to 800m and 50 mph winds, closely followed by snow on summits providing a decent work out for their kit – all good so far!
