Meall Corranaich

I was in the Ben Lawers area again today with Chris and Kim looking at Ropework for Winter Hill Walkers. After a couple of hours working on knots and skills indoors we braved the improving weather and found enough snow to build, test and use some snow anchors on the north side of Meall Corranaich.

The snow pack in the area has reduced to mostly just patches and ribbons of snow on north and east faces above 900m.  Above this altitude the turf is still remarkably firm where not taking drainage and some ice is still holding on.
