I went to have a look at the East side of Beinn a’ Chaorainn today with the aim of staying sheltered from the very strong summit winds. It was a dry morning with rain in the afternoon and I managed to get back down before the rain started. It was very mild and there was even some sunshine.
The snowpack is wet throughout and generally stable with cornice collapse and falling ice and rock the main hazards. The thaw over the last couple of days has greatly reduced snow cover, particularly at lower elevations.
