Social distancing.

17th March 2020

I had no problems with the 2 metres apart recommendations today as it was eerily quiet in the Corrie. I had met 3 skiers who were at the bothy, they should have been in Norway but…..  I made a tactical decision I wasn’t going to the top, way too windy. However the Corrie was sheltered and surprising mild, around +1.8 degrees celsius but dropping towards this evening. Freezing level will be 500 metres tonight, 700 metres tomorrow.


Lochnagar at its best this morning. Wasn’t that keen on walking across the loch today, had a slight change in colour since I was last there.


There are large cornices around most of the Corrie. These above Central and the Southern Sector.


Looking up Central Gully. Despite a recent cornice collapse there is still plenty to come down. Much of this can easily cross the approach path.


The main crag.


TB Face and Pinnacle face.


The Black Spout.


A last view from the burn. The West Ridge, on right becoming snow free.
