Following my return from the Alps yesterday, today I have been in Glencoe with the Falkirk High Tops Team.
We walked in to Stob Coire nan Lochan passing a number of teams walking out due to a good number of observed avalanches. Some teams had been pretty close to the run out from these.
Our intended route was Dorsal Arete. However, on inspection of the coire we decided that the approach and potentially the exit (it had a small droopy cornice) would be to serious. Therefore, we climbed the North East Ridge before traversing the coire rim and descending back to the valley.
During the day lots of snow was being redistributed. Exposed ridges were very icy and required careful cramponing.
