Lochnagar 27th April

Lochnagar – 27th April
Stronger winds overnight than expected resulted in a fair bit of drifting – the path up to the Lochnagar col seemed to have collected more than its fair share and required a bit of trail breaking this morning. Black Spout, Right Hand Branch in particular had windslab in it with more blowing in this morning.

Main Cliffs – Right hand branch of Black Spout was holding fresh windslab with drifting occurring this morning
Still amazing cover in the corrie, considering that it is nearly May!

It is a fairly complicated weather forecast for the next period so check out the main report if you are heading out tomorrow.
