Hold onto your hats, it’s a wild and windy St Patrick’s day!
17th March 2022
A return to windy weather with 85 mph gusts over the tops. Â Drifting snow from the plateau, new windslab accumulations have developed on steep wind sheltered terrain at higher levels. Â The winds were from the South-West making it hard going for anyone walking into the corries. Â A couple of early birds left to go climbing at first light to avoid the increasing winds, they had a successful morning with reports of superb climbing conditions on a North-West facing buttress. Â On a steep Northerly aspect above 1000 metres a human triggered avalanche occurred at around midday. Â Elsewhere the snowpack is mostly wind scoured and firm.
