Also worth noting that on the south side of the Cairngorms, the bridge across the Derry at Derry Lodge has been washed away, and the state of other bridges further upstream is currently unknown - http://www.mcofs.org.uk/news.asp?s=2&id=MCS-N11476&nc=Access%20and%20Conservation
I've heard it's changed little, so as safe as it ever was.
Pretty dodgey unless we'll frozen in place then ;)
Thanks for that, Andy. We went up there today and tbh I couldn't even tell where the rockfall would have been - so to me exactly as you said: safe as it ever was...
You're welcome. I was being cautious.
yea, much appreciated.
Ah, that's good to know. Seems like a big deal was made out of nothing!
or maybe not....
I don't think it's anything to do with recent weather. The cliffs in Sneachda have always had loose sections. The accidents are to do with more popularity, not that the accident rate is any different. Pygmy Ridge is more popular because it's described in scrambling books as well as in climbing guides (don't know whether this is relevant in this case).
