Lochnagar 6th March

6th March 2009

Had a visit to Lochnagar today. It’s still very snowy but anywhere exposed to the sun is thinning or falling off.  There is debris at the bottom of all the usual suspects with some sloughs under the West area. There is still plenty more that can come off and with the current forecast for Saturday careful thought will have to go into route choice.

Pic: Only saw 2 climbers today, they were heading up Black Spout.
Pic: S.Sector, reasonable cornice build up over Central gully area, this will cross the approach path when it falls off.
Pic: Sam doing her stuff.
