The second WUD (Wet Underpants Day) of my season! Driving rain and strong winds throughout the morning and I never really managed to climb into the freezing level as it kept rising just ahead of me…. Slow going through the heavy snow. However, the snowshoes worked at treat.
A final glimpse of Liathach as the rain and snow arrived. Heavy spindrift at higher elevations.
A Maelstrom! Constant spindrift swirling around in the wind eddies in upper Coire an Laoigh, Beinn Eighe. I never made it into the upper coire, but…… Wind scouring on exposed aspects.
First time out for these dudes! High tech MSR snowshoes – certainly helped through the deep moist snowpack. Of course, the Mountain Hares have natural snowshoes. According to the tracks, which direction is the hare travelling – towards or away from me?
A bit of brightness appearing by early afternoon.
Snow erosion and deposition areas on Creag Dhubh of Beinn Eighe in the gusty gale force Southerlies.
