Flat light in the Cairngorms

23rd March 2008

This tent is covering a snowhole in the Sneachda moraines. Due to poor visibility and the shelter being completely buried under new snow I managed to fall in the hole landing on the shelter, luckily nobody was underneath, although we did check inside for bodies! infact where are our mystery snowholers?!

Below is Coire an t-Sneachda. Many people were climbing today, snow accumulations are variable from wind scoured to deep drifts.
