Tough call...

7 April 2013
It was quiet in Glen Coe, so we had the Lost Valley to ourselves. This is a great walk that I seldom do as I normally cut up right onto the Zig Zags of Gearr Aonach. We headed to the snow line and the coire headwall with the plan of climbing Stob Coire Sgreamhach, but on assessing the final snow slope (32°+)
I found 2 weak layers in the snow pack that changed the plan.

We headed to a safer spot, dug a snow shelter, had soup and decided to head off the hill.

A great day with good decisions made...
