Found Black Diamond snow-shovel handle in Coire Domhain, I guess likely lost by some snow-holers or ski-tourers. Black handle/shaft, blue bit of nylon cordelette tied to the bottom. Sitting shallow in the snow, caked with a bit of ice but visible when we picked it up on Thursday 25 January 2018, so I guess lost no longer than a week beforehand.
Found in Coire Domhain, between Hell's Lum crag, top of Sneachda & top of Coire an Lochain, in the Cairngorms. Snow-shovel handle/shaft (Black Diamond). If it's yours, get in touch ASAP - I'm in Edinburgh this weekend for the EMFF, and then off to the Alps for a bit. 07875 631 036.
