Cornice Collapse

10th March 2014

Some significant cornice collapse today on Aonach Mor. Triggered due tot he shear size and weight of the cornices instead of the usual temperature rise, although that will also be a significant factor in the next few days

Inspecting the cornice wall left after it released

Cornice wall prob about 5m high

Cornice released a slab in the old snow below. Crownwall on one side about 1.2m towards the top

Looking back up
