Rain and severe gales
21st February 2020
Summit snow turned to sleet and heavy rain through the morning. Â Storm force winds with gusts at summit levels up to 125 mph. Plus 5 degrees recorded at 800 metres at around midday. Â A recent wet snow avalanche was observed on a steep, convex East facing slope in Lochain. Â A day to hold onto loose items and use terrain features or boulders for shelter and a respite from the wind. Â Precarious conditions in thawing boulder fields and stream beds, Â a day of post holing to the top of your leg and beyond!
Coire an Lochain
