Wet and windy

Note the large crown wall on the West flank of Coire an Lochain.

There was heavy rain and strong winds at all levels today causing a huge thaw. This is how Lochain looked at around midday. Summit winds gusted to over 120 mph today.

This small cornice at 820 metres had collapsed earlier causing a small slide on the scarp slope below.
Back to freezing temperatures again tomorrow!
