(Above) Overnight snow on the track for the morning walk-in to Beinn a Chaorainn – not enough for skis unfortunately, so shanks pony again.
(Above) Beinn a Chaorainn’s East RidgeÂ – worth a look after yesterday’s cornice collapsing events and further overnight winds and snow.
(Above) Some of the gully sections with accumulations of new soft slab – consolidating rapidly at lower elevations; although around coire rims and above 950m these newest accumulations still with weaknesses.
(Above) …… and on the way down – further evidence of current rapid consolidation. Showers throughout the day and with plenty of bright periods many sun affected slopes at higher elevations had roller ball activity, from new snow on crag areas.
Snow doesn’t like change – some more on the way; with snow showers in the forecast, plus a rapid temperature rise to above summit elevations and rain. Up and down
