Coire na Tulaich Avalanche

21st February 2014

The pictures below are of a large avalanche that occurred in Coire na Tulaich on Buachaille Etive Mor. It probably released during the early hours of Thursday morning when the freezing level rose above the summit and heavy rain fell.  It would have released from the top of the Coire at an altitude of 880 metres, and ran down to about 450 metres. The gorge at the bottom of the Coire is completely full of debris, probably up to 15 metres (if not more) deep in places. It will be a while before that lot melts.
