A Damp Day on the Ben.

27th January 2018

It was a mild and wet day on the Ben today. There was a fair amount of avalanche debris of various ages about. There were fresh piles of debris below Number Two Gully and Number Five Gully. South Castle Gully avalanched around midday.

It was quite a windy one today. Streams of water blown upwards from the CIC hut cascades.

A substantial block of old avalanche debris at the bottom of observatory gully.

There is a bit of ice about on Ben Nevis at the moment. Although a bit on the damp side today, climbing conditions should improve in the colder conditions which are expected next week.

Looking up into Coire na Ciste. Although hard to make out in this picture, there is a substantial pile of debris coming below Number Two Gully.
