‘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!

NB. For scale only -she may not look that happy, but no animals were harmed in producing this Blog (just me!)
