Coire Giubhsachan

2nd March 2018

Today I headed into the little frequented Coire Giubhsachan from the the Glen Nevis side. It was another windy and cold day. There was some light snow blowing around in the air, but it did not seem to be settling on the ground. Winds hopefully easing down a bit tomorrow.

Over the past few days I have heard a few people asking about the conditions of the Steall Falls, well here they are. 

Water courses are becoming choked with ice. 

Nice patterns in the ice. The cold weather has frozen bogs and water courses over which in some places makes for much easier going. 

Looking up the debris of a significant avalanche that came down the South East side of the Ben probably during the warm spell a couple of weeks ago now. 

Looking down the debris from the same location. Hard to judge the scale, but it is pretty substantial. The debris had split into three different tongues. 

A closer view of one of the tongues of debris. 

Looking back to Aonach Beag
