/ Avalanche in Fionn Choire, Am Bhasteir
Keep safe if you're heading up there!
Different ends of the ridge surely?
Whoops sorry. yeah lol.
There was one in Broad Gully on SCNL on Sat too.
Has the Cairngorms had any recorded this year?
You're right about the rarity; these are the 1st wet slab avalanches I've seen in 18 Cuillin winters.
Moderators have put my shot of the point the avalanche in the Stone Shoot started up- http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=208098
I'll link some photo's to my user profile once they are up.
Here's a photo, bit blurry though. The snow pack had a crust of around two inches on top before becoming soft but very hard when compacted.
Think it was slab or loose snow?
