Aonach Eagach

I have been back out today in Glencoe on the ultra classic Aonach Eagach. We approached directly up the ridge to Am Bodach. The upper section of this is was on good firm snow which requires crampons.

Conditions on the ridge were excellent with lots of useful neve. Of note though is that there is significant cornicing and windslab present on the side of the ridges.

More snow fell today during the afternoon. There was lots of localised effects of the wind increasing the hazard on all aspects.
