Large cornices still remaining over some East aspects.

The picture below shows cornice debris in Corrie Dubh on Aonach Mor, which also took some of the slope with it. It was caused by a collapsing cornice very similar to the one above.

Debris from a cornice collapse sometime in the past few days.
