It was fairly busy in the corrie today.Â A classic sunny day.
Todays main observation pit was on the other side of the summit from here.
There are very weak layers in the snowpack but they currently are supported by hard dense snow above them. These are highly variable in strength and difficult to work out what weight they can hold.
The good skiing didn’t last to long…. lets just say lower down it was very Scottish!

Hi Danny, It’s proper name is Corrie na Saobhaidhe, NW of the main Corrie on the other side of the West Ridge. It is in the guidebook, has about 3 easy ice routes in it, routes are not as good as the main corrie though! Best accessed from Gelder, it can be a good way to ski in as the lower tracks up past the bothy often hold snow.

Thanks! I won’t tell you how long I’ve wondered about that. :o)
