(Above) …… and we’re off!Â Â Â Deep drifts still on the approach path into Coire Ardair. I got half-way along it yesterday before scurrying (sort of ) up a gully line for a pitÂ – seconds away round two!
(Above) Sron a Ghoire with some cornice developmentÂ and new windslab on North East to Easterly aspects. Windward slopes blown bare.
(Above) Coire a Chriochairein. It wasÂ hard to be sure but there lookedÂ to have been some possible recent cornice collapse on the shadowed area (top skyline) centre of photo. At any rate unstable cornices are still developing around these high coire rims in the present conditions

From the Other Guy: Re. trail not ‘fully forged’. That’s no ‘celestial city’ at the top end of Coire Ardair. Looks more like Bunyan’s ‘slough of despond’. Pity poor Christian tomorrow!
