Mild, wet interlude in prospect.

6th March 2020

(Above) Viewed from Laggan. L to R: Puist Coire Ardair, Sron a Ghoire, Bellevue Buttress, Pinnacle Buttress, the Post face of Coire Ardair & Coire nan Gall. Bathed in early milky sunshine this morning. Didn’t last!


(Above) Coire Chriochairein a little later. Much murkier as high, grey cloud edged and filtered the sunlight. Some snow showers started at around 11.30am as the winds picked up a little and induced some limited drifting above 950m. Cornices, as per photo, present above most N to E aspects which will become less stable once the milder, wet weather kicks in on Saturday.


(Above) The Post Face of Coire Ardair just as the the murk and snow showers started. Looking white and wintry today. Different story tomorrow, Saturday, when the freezing level is expected to rise to 1750m during the morning + rain at all levels. Oh, joy!


(Above) The main Coire Ardair track. Still quite a depth of snow here at 500m but the expected, short-lived (I think) meltdown will reduce our snow cover, especially below 400m.
