Today’s Profile

23rd January 2011

Today’s profile was done at a lower height than recent days. Here the snowpack had softened due to overnight cloud cover and subsequent higher temperatures. Note the old fracture line beyond the pit, triggered by cornice collapse from above. First day for a while that crampons were not neccessary. Higher up though the snow remains rock solid.
