Cairngorms, Coire Odhar snow status?

Cairngorms, Coire Odhar snow status?


Postby Makila2a » Fri Jun 25, 2021 12:14 pm

Has anyone been up or down through Coire Odhar in the last few days? This is the access/egress for the Devils Point above the Corrour bothy. Is it fairly snow free yet? Any photos appreciated!

Judging by the general lack of cover (see here https://tarmachan.blogspot.com/2021/06/summer-solstice-ben-nevis-2021.html and scroll down past the Ben pictures) I don't think you will have any problems.

Amazing how quick the snow has gone
I was on the ben just less than 4 weeks ago, I reckon it was about 4 feet deep at the summit then. :shock:

Cheers Biscuit, didn’t think it would be completely snow free, but turns out it is, sure has gone quick!
