Coire na Ba and avalanche on Beinn Bhan

20th February 2014

 
Very wet and melting at all levels overnight. Snow heading to the sea. 
 The bridge over the Russel Burn, Cioch nose in the background.
 
However, the temperature dropped rapidly during the morning. Precipitation turned to snow catching several vehicles out on Bealach na Ba road. Cavalry came quickly to the rescue. Thanks!

Looking back down towards Loch Kishorn from about 500 metres on Bealach na Ba road.

Coire na Poite on Beinn Bhan below. Large avalanche observed here about 12.30. 100 metres wide. Debris flowed for at least 20 seconds. What looks like icefalls (lower left centre) is the last remenants flowing down the hill.
