Meteorological Spring

1st March 2022

First of March and it did feel a bit like Spring today. Spring snow certainly and still daylight when reports are getting compiled. There has been significant snow loss since I was here a week ago. Plenty mountaineering objectives remain though!

Above, Coireag Dubh Beag on the North side of Liathach.

Below, Coireag Dubh Mor, the next corrie to the West. Ice collapse debris visible below the cliff, most likely from a milder period about ten days ago.

Above, Looking on to the South West aspects of Sail Mhor and Coinneach Mhor on Beinn Eighe from the North side of Liatach. Last nights forecast was for 0.5cm of snow at summit level and that looks about right with the very obvious line of  grey dusting above 850 metres.

Below, Continuing East along the ridge to Stuic Coire an Laoigh the hillside is relatively snow free, scoured by the wind and exposed to isolation as the sun rises higher in the sky and has a greater effect on the snowpack.
