The thaw continues

Glencoe is still in the grip of an increasingly serious thaw. Almost all the snow has now been stripped from Aonach Dubh West Face; none of the gully lines are even complete after several days of thaw, and there is no visible ice left. Reports indicate it has been raining at summit levels. Temperatures are mild in the glen and there is much hill fog around.

It's unlikely that all the snow in the highest corries will be stripped out, but we could really do with another freeze before the thaw does too much damage!

Isi and I are planning on going to the Arrochar Alps on Thursday and Friday so I should have a report from that area, whatever we end up doing.
