High Pressure Building
6th January 2018
(Above) A fine , cold and a mostly clear day – just a little bit of cloud hanging around summits as I made my way towards Coire Ardair. Skis useful for access again today, with variable driftingÂ even at lower elevations.Â
(Above) Coire a Chriochairein – under a fresh mantle of snow
(Above) New wind blown deposits shifting around throughout the day – giving very varied accumulations in high, sheltered lee areas.
(Above) Sron a Ghoire on opposite side of Coire Ardair -Â many ridgeline slopes scoured
(Above) Fresh slab cracking easily underfoot today, on Westerly aspects
(Above) The Post Face today – under a fresh cover, but not any great build up as yet;Â some slab around, particularly on likes ofÂ the ramp of Staghorn (leading to base of The Pipes, right of photo.)
