Mist the Post

5th January 2016


…….and missed the snow all the other SAIS areas seem to have had in varying degrees.

Lochan crags(Above) Still water and black crags (though wreathed in a diaphanous mist above 800m).

Raeburns1(Above) Now-you-see-me, now you-don’t Bellevue Buttress bounded by Raeburn’s Gully on the right, then Pinnacle Buttress extreme right. Principal low grade gully lines thin or broken at the moment.

Staghorn mist(Above) The opening ramp of Staghorn Gully going on up in to the mist and frost. Part of the Post Face looming above to the left.

EG1(Above) Easy Gully. A bit of a quarry at the bottom end. Smears of ice just beginning to form on Last Post. Free water still evident at the lower end of South and Centre Post.

Stone(Above) Bit of a theme here! More mist in Coire a Chriochairein.

Little real change again on Wednesday. Perhaps we’ll get a little more snow? It’s feast or famine East to West across the six SAIS areas at the moment. On balance I’ll settle for famine given the enormous difficulties the huge amount of precip has brought to Deeside and parts of Perthshire.

    The first photo is wonderfully atmospheric.
