deep snow in glencoe for winter skills course!

hard going out there!


always something to climb up.




the classic !

Andy was out with Dave on friday.

The new heavy dump of snow really challenged our decision making of where to work and instruct. So much new snow has fallen that wading waist deep is the order of the day!
We chose the windward corie of the ne face of Sgorr Bhan and its ne ridge, it was still loaded with fresh powder and unconsolidated damp snow.
We looked at everything from snow shelters , pacing, snow belays to descent methods and had a really constructive day despite the difficult conditions.
