/ Glencoe - Conditions
Snow unconsolidated in the coire bowl. Boulder field pretty much just a powder covered boulder field lol. Turf was soft underneath everywhere I could tell.
There were three dozen people on Dorsal, people on Ordinary Route (Central Buttress), Crest Route, and as far as I could tell Evening Citizen.
Thanks for that. Looks like we'll be heading a bit higher...
Bit late with this one. Snow needless to say unconsolidated but not too deep. On Saturday the turf was frozen on the steeper ground where there was less snow. A bit soft though on some gentler ground where the snow was deeper. On Sunday all the turf I encountered was rock solid. Some photos here (report to follow tonight or tomorrow morning when I have a moment):
