Some Sunshine!

19th February 2017

The weather was nicer than expected on Aonach Mor today with a fair bit of sunshine. The spring snowpack continues to slowly thaw and consolidate. Does not look quite so nice for tomorrow though!.

Coire an Lochan holding at reasonable covering of snow.

Looking down Easy Gully. Lots of loose rock exposed. Rock fall is a hazard in the mild conditions.

The view East to the Grey Corries.

There were some good cloudscapes today. The summit of Ben Nevis just visible.

Cornice collapse. There are not too many cornices left, but those which do remain are prone to collapse in the mild conditions.
