Stob Mhic Mhartuin

Heavy snow arrived last night and this morning in Glencoe on strong winds before clearing late morning to give a stunning day of sunshine and showers.

I have been out today on Stob Mhic Mhartuin with a team looking at essential winter skills such as ice axe arrest and cramponing. Deep snow can be found on most aspects and cracking of the snowpack is clearly visible from the feet indicating that lots of windslab is around. We had one crack propagate eight metres from our feet on a convexity. It is worth consulting the avalanche forecast before heading out.
