Another cold day with a bitter wind chill. Bright in the morning but clouding up during the late morning. The old snow is very firm with plenty of boulders showing through to arrest any slips or trips. A little blip in the freezing level tomorrow but it’s now looking like it will stay cooler into the weekend with further snow showers.

Mostly black buttresses with firm snow-ice beneath and a mainly cosmetic dusting of new snow.

 

Some overhanging snow left around the corrie rim, but most of the cornices have shrunk back.

 

Central Gully and Central Buttress

 

Southern Sector – Firm snow-ice with poor runouts.
