A mild and damp Ben Nevis

19th March 2010

Still some ice hanging in there on the Orion face.
It was pretty windy up there today (see the spray from the waterfalls going up). There has been a drastic thaw at this level recently. A couple of days ago the main cic hut ice fall looked almost climbable, but now it has collapsed.


A couple of days ago these large holes in the snow cover weren’t there.
