The thaw goes on.
23rd February 2009
The thaw continued today. The snowpack feels very spring like at the moment, that is homogeneous layers of large (2-3mm) wet grains. Stability is generally good. The greatest hazard is rock and ice fall, or any remaining sections of cornice collapsing.
Every day there is a noticeable reduction in the snow cover at lower levels. At higher levels it is still hanging in there. There is a fair bit of ice in some of the higher gullies, and although damp at the moment, should hopefully survive the thaw.
Could really do with some colder weather, and some snow.
