Another stunning day – Cold in the morning though with lots of ice on the tracks and paths first thing. High pressure is set to hang around for tomorrow as well so another settled day has been forecast. I decided to get high today and went up Ben Avon – The view across on to the Beinn a’Bhuird plateau showed that there is still a fair amount of snow up there. The old snow-ice remains firm especially on the shady Northerly aspects – Softening slightly on the South aspects in the very strong sunlight.
Small cornices and evidence of single point releases on the South facing aspects of Coire nan Clach, North Top, Beinn a’Bhuird
Garbh Choire, Beinn a’Bhuird. Shady North facing aspects holding snow.
Leabaidh an Daimh Bhuidhe, Ben Avon (1171m). Translates to “Couch of the yellow stag”. Sadly didn’t see him today….
Long shot to Lochnagar and The Stuic from Ben Avon
Still a reasonable amount of snow on the Beinn a’Bhuird plateau. Looking over the Garbh Choire to North Top Beinn a’Bhuird from Ben Avon.
