HIGHLAND HEATWAVE CONTINUES
Braeriach from the summit of Sgor Gaoithe
Cornices still hanging on
Much snow loss on Braeriach
The view north
Another dry, warm day in the Highlands and some pleasant sunshine this morning, high cloud later on and strong winds. Very hazy again but can't complain. I set off on a bike ride up Glen Feshie and ended up on Sgor Gaoithe, as you do. Not a soul to be seen yet again. A great deal of snow loss since just one week ago when I was last here. No ironmongery required today and any snow patches easily avoided. Big glide cracks in the cornices as elsewhere.
