Good photo; nice and dynamic and unusual to get a view down onto a winter leader. What sort of height is this at and was the turf good?

Thanks Jamie, the crag's at 750m and the turf was excellent.

Lochaber was getting rained on at all elevations and turf was on the turn on the same day; a telling comparison!

Hi Jamie, it was warming up in Strathfarrar that day too, but we'd heavy snow showers and lots of spindrift on the route. Not a good combination, i triggered a soft-slab avalanche just below the cornice - smallish but big enough to start moving me downwards. Thankfully i just dropped back into the large trench i'd been digging my way up the top slope and stopped.
