Aonach Mor: some sunshine and avalanche debris.
4th March 2015
Today there were periods of sunshine on Aonach Mor plateau, but also periods of thick mist and very poor visibility. Debris and crown walls from several natural avalanches that released yesterday or last night were visible on East and South-East aspects.

Crown walls are visible in middle left and right (above the patch of sunshine) of this picture.
Coire an Lochan: Debris visible down to the lochan and piling up on it.
Along the East side of the Aonach Mor plateau we discovered this crack (just above the snow shovel) running for about 75 metres, some 8-10 metres back from the cornice edge, and at its southern end disappearing to the edge of the cornice. It was at least 75cm deep in places.
