Glenfinnan and Glencoe

On Wednesday a team from Ballachulish and I walked into Corryhully Bothy before traversing Sgur an Fhuarain Duibh finishing in the dark so we could practice our night navigation skills. Of note is that the 1:50000 OS map of this hill shows no crags on the southerly aspect. This is incorrect and worth remembering when route planning.

We overnighted at the bothy before climbing Stob Coire nan Cearc the next day. There was fresh avalanche debris on this hill at 720 metres on a North Easterly aspect.

The weather warmed considerably on Thursday with rain at all levels. We did however manage to find enough snow on Stob Mhic Mhartuin in Glencoe on Friday to build emergency snow shelters and complete some ice axe arrest practice. The crags of Stob Coire nan Lochan are now black.
