Lochnagar

6th March 2011

Gullies in good form, some steep ice remains and quality curling available on the loch. Note sun on north facing cornices. Snow profile shows clearly some of the layers; soft four finger resistance near surface, melt freeze crust indicated by red arrow and firmer, still dry (when first exposed) snow below (pencil resistant). Thermometers in the shade of shovel to get air temperature.
