A Tart’s Boudoir

7th April 2018

(Above) Coire Ardair, with Easy Gully center of photo – it’s all gone a bit wet and mushy underfoot. The crags are becoming pretty much ice free below 850 metres

(Above) The Inner Coire Ardair, plenty of folk (and dogs) out stretching their legs up towards ‘The Window’ today.  Not that great a day  beyond, with a freshening SW wind and a bit of dizzle later in the day.

(Above) Hanging around above Cinderella in the Inner Coire – a couple of ‘fat tarts’ waiting to plant a Glasgow Kiss on any unsuspecting visitors….

(Above) The exit slopes immediately above ‘The Pipes’ (photo center) not looking that pretty either.

I feel I’ve missed out on the ‘supermodel’ courtship this season -   the Inner Coire, Cinderella today looking more a tart than any supermodel!

    Your blogs are getting more and more surreal to the point where I am beginning to think my own thoughts are normal.
    Please keep it up.
    And……spring is fast approaching even up there. God help any unaware visitors when those cornices let go.
    Would warning signs at the car park be appropriate? “They used to do it in Glencoe near the evil Sisters after too many perished.

      Ha ha – yes, we’re never sure where our thoughts take us at his stage of the season!
      Funnily enough – a roadside warning in Glencoe the very forerunner to our current service.
      A police managed venture – unfortunately one of the negative aspects being it went up in Dec, then came down end of April – and like the proverbial clock was correct at certain times…….

      That said any actual predictions regarding cornice collapse always a tricky one – a bit of rain usually a reasonable heads up!

      Almost done!

      Thanks for your comments Stan – has all added to the entertainment
