Lochnagar 1.3.15

1st March 2015

There was another brief thaw last night with the freezing level around 900 metres at mid-day. New snow amounts are variable, sometimes fairly deep. ¬†Unfortunately the older snow-ice has not yet frozen and is fairly ‘mushy’ under the surface. There was quite a bit of cornice debris around the corrie with the biggest debris area in Central gully. Still some sizeable cornices around though.

Looking good when clouds cleared.
