Lochnagar

7th March 2012

There had been heavy rain overnight on the tops but the weather had cleared and the temperature was below freezing by morning. The rock is less white than it was a couple of days ago but not much change in the amount of snow in the gullies.

The Black Spout is still complete. Firm snow but not as firm as yesterday. The two in the pictures below head up the main spout.

Below, looking into the top of Raeburn’s Gully. (The foreground & patch of snow is not part of the gully, it angles back downwards left out of sight from this viewpoint).

Later in the day the snow showers picked up but never lasted more than a few minutes.
