Windy and Wet

5th March 2015

After a good fall of snow on Tuesday and a promising day yesterday, it’s back to rising temperatures, rain above¬†summit level and diminishing snowpack! However, there are still extensive¬†accumulations of snow high up. A large wet snow avalanche (size three) debris was observed on Liathach, on an easterly aspect starting at 750m and descending 300m and over a recognised ascent path! The mild wet weather is forecast to continue.

Does a rainbow mean onset of rain or clearing to sun? Is your cup half full or half empty?

Liathach. How much longer will the ice on Pyramid buttress last?
