Bob Dylan – ‘The answer is blowin in the wind’

28th February 2017

Some shifting snow being re-distributed onto varying aspects in high sheltered, lee locations today (details as per outlined in main report)

(Above) Coire Ardair – and slopes of the Inner Coire to ‘The Window’

(Above) The Post Face. South Post (to center of shot)

Photo taken from afar on the Cairn Liath Plateau so apologies not great quality –  some convex pillows of slab lying around in these steep North Easterly aspects

(Above) Coire a Chriochairein. Doing its best to look Alpine – with it’s East ridge rising above the Cairn Liath Plateau             (well I thought so at least!)

(Above) Uinneag Coire a Chaorainn (Sharks Gultch)

Billowing plumes of snow being re-distributed here today from this steep North Westerly aspect – today’s pit site  on the other side of the ridgeline, in the lee – some new shallow accumulations of softer slab were forming, usually small pockets and on mostly easier ground


‘Spot’ – the dog!

    Dog spotted ; but had to squint!
    And…..” You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows” . One of Mr Zimmerman’s lines as relevant today as it was in the 60’s.

      Very true indeed Sir,
      A Mark IV eyeball often the best asset around – that and humming to oneself when lost…..
