Ghostly Corrie

19th February 2016

Deep snow higher up on the walk into Coire nan Lochan, today.  One pair of climbers appeared to retreat from half way up to the foot of the cliffs after a lengthy deliberation.  Otherwise the only group I saw were skirting up the corrie rim.  Not a very photogenic day!

The lower part of the rim of the corrie - hard to see how much of a cornice has developed through the mirk
