Western End

26th December 2021

Today’s Boxing Day outing was to the Western end of the Creag Meagaidh range, to Beinn a Chaorainn. Many slopes have been scoured in the recent very strong winds. Small localised accumulations of marginally bonded windslab can nonetheless still be found;  any pockets are fairly easily avoidable.

    I think the wind slab hunter is the Apprentice. Am I right? Either way an extremely nice sight.
