I was in the office when the snow went, it was pretty mental.
In the pentlands om Sunday, heres a shot of some of the avalanche activity we spotted on Caerketton Hill.
Scary pic. We were out on the planks on sunday too. Did you see the debris from the full depth avalanche on the NW flank of Allermuir, around Todhole Knowe? Big patch of grass, probably visible from the by-pass.
Hah, that'd imply I was on some sort of ski tour and not on the way to the Steading for a pub lunch via Caerketton Hill!
2km long descent from the top to the pub. Planks on all the way except the fence round the golf course.
Can I use that photo in our report please?
Lol, we came off Black Hill down to the forest and I suggested going to the Flotterstone and getting a taxi. It didn't work. We came back in the dark instead, stunning pink light on the back of Allermuir.
Seen your picture now (http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=161215) thats a whopper!
