Beinn a Chaorainn

26th January 2023

(Above) Beinn a Chaorainn photographed from Luiblea. Noticeably clearer weather at the western end of our area, not sunny but decent visibility for most of the day. The cornice line above the two (of three) East-facing coires of this mountain are not as monstrous in size as they can be but nevertheless cantilever out over the steep coire backwalls by at least 2m in places. All are frozen today but expecting them to soften a little in milder temperatures on Friday.


(Above) The East Ridge of Beinn a Chaorainn from the wee coire to the south of it. Runnels of firmer snow-ice in places today over on the other (north-facing) side of the ridge above 900m but a bit stripped below this altitude.


(Above) The view south towards left to right Geal Charn 1107m, Aonach Beag 1116m and Beinn Eibhinn 1102m. Snow cover holding up pretty well in these north-facing coires.
