Checked out the snow conditions at Ciste Mhearad yesterday to see if there is a chance to do some snowholing next week. The is an existing snowhole at the west side, near an old avalanche. There you get about 2.5m depth of snow. At the opposite side you get one spot with about 3m depth but this would need a bit of cooling as it doesn’t look very stable. All the snow is very wet and would be easy to dig but would also mean that you would get soaking wet and the hole would shrink by the morning. It might be an interesting night if we decide to go snowholing.
