Anybody been up Black Spout on Lochnagar in the last few days? I was wondering what the condition is like, cornice at the top etc?

In reply to Mike Flaherty: A few parties went up it today and reported bomber neve the whole way, even said towards the top was some water ice apparently. Didn't mention any serious cornice issues and didn't see any myself from the corrie.

In reply to Mike Flaherty: I was up it couple days back, mostly solid all the way with a couple soft patches. LH is a steep finish at the moment.

In reply to PaulN: Walked down the left hand fork yesterday, bomber neve, so it's in excellent condition. If only Eagle ridge had been covered in the same stuff!

In reply to michael83: Oh, and cornice won't be an issue, easily passed.

In reply to michael83: Haha, yep best neve on the path! We opted for the cathedral partly to find it and partly to have less digging time;)
