Avalanche on Snowdon

There was a avalanche today on Snowdon, at the top of the PYG track, fortunately no one was hurt, although two people were reportedly caught in the slip. There is a lot of Snow accumulating in the gully’s at the moment, as well as a strong breeze building up windslab.

Baggy has some good info on where some of this build up is and might be, as well as a some more information about condition. If winter suffering is your bag.
Remember at time no route is worth the risk. A climber was overheard today saying “We’ve come all the way from …(Insert somewhere a long way away)… we are going to climb it”. As this attitude might well end up kicking you back in the arse.
