Seeking absolution?

12th February 2019

It must have been something I’d done in a previous life because somehow I’ve displeased the mountain gods.

Got soaking wet gearing up by the car park this morning and the intense showers only relented when I got back to the car in the afternoon.

Just to rub it in, the skies then cleared and a few glimpses of blue appeared along with a little weak sunshine.

‘Timing is everything’. Or is it that I need to say three ‘Hail Messners’ each morning?

Photos apres deluge:

(Above) Looking back to Sron a Ghoire. Still pretty good cover despite the mild, wet weather. Outlook is mild for several days so the snowpack will certainly diminish.


(Above) Coire Dubh. Though not large, one or two cornices still in place here and these may well remain a concern for the next few days. Same applies to the very steep N to SE aspects in Coire Ardair. In the event of collapse they’re likely to impose a high additional load on the slopes below.


(Above) The final humiliation. Sun illuminating part of the Carn Liath plateau this afternoon.
