The thaw continues.

12th March 2009

It would appear the thaw started taking hold late yesterday and evening. There was a lot more debris in the Corrie today, biggest being significant amounts from the Raeburns/Black Spout combo. I was surprised to see that most of the cornices are hanging on, it was slightly cooler today perhaps it was enough to keep them there. Black Spout RH had not got a cornice, but I didn’t see up the LH route.
Grampian Police MRT and a couple of members from Braemar MRT were in the corrie today. They intended to do a big lower but it was very windy on top, well worth avoiding standing near edges today!!
