A windy day!

14th March 2017

A very windy day which had you crouching, bracing with your sticks or grabbing at nearby rocks for support during the heavier gusts.  The rain continued into the morning and there was one very light snow shower above 800 metres.  Quiet in the corrie with only the sound of the occasional rock clattering about in the relative shelter from the wind below the crags.

Plenty of water in the burns in the thaw conditions.

Snow cover on the crags themselves is getting a bit spartan.

Looking up to the dark bulk of the Dorsal Arete, fringed by Broad Gully (not seen but complete) on its left and the mottled Forked Gully on its right.

Looking across Glen Coe from Coire nan Lochan to the Aonach Eagach ridge in patchy sunlight
