Lochnagar

7th March 2020

Went into Lochnagar with the hope of catching a little cornice collapse action but the warmer temperatures arrived a few hours later than expected, during the early afternoon so I slogged into the corrie with a head wind for very little return… a few monochrome shots of the base of the cliffs as the cloud was pretty low at times. Constant light precipitation with strong and gusty winds meant that it wasn’t a particularly pleasant excursion.

Very windy overnight with further rain and then from late evening the freezing level will start to lower again and the precipitation will eventually turn to very light snowfall. Surface layers will start to firm up as the freezing level makes its way back down to around 800 metres.
