Fairly solid snow in Flower today, although it would have been nicer if we had got there an hour earlier, as on the second half of the ascent, the snow started warming up quite rapidly. Pinwheels were observed and lots of sluffing along the descent. Overall, fairly stable base underneath the top 10cm
