(Above) A poor mountain day – looking through the rain and murk to the Post face of Creag Meagaidh. Talus areas at gully bases were seen with newly entrained debris from wet snow instabilities; as conditions transitioned from fresh snow on tops overnight to rain at all levels.
(Above) Creep lines were developing, these at a low elevation around 600m
