Last light on the Boar of Badenoch


I'm pleased to have skied and survived this one unscathed. The Boar (or An Torc) is very distinctive alongside the A9 with its flanks running steeply and directly down to the road. Here, we're contemplating an entry and the best descent off the small cornice. Frankly, the snow below was horrid, steep at 35-40 degrees but with a crust that broke on every attempted turn.
