sunhine on saturday in glencoe, winter mountaineeering course.

A typical situation at the mo up there, and only at 300m!

The largest snow bollard in Scotland at 30m round!
pile up!

T axe belay construction.

Loch Leven behind.

Andy was out again working for 'the ice factor' today. The conditions remained similar to Friday, the wind dropped some what but the snow is still yet to consolidate!
We headed to the the south west ridge of Mam na Gualainn to use the amazing snow slopes and wind scoops that cover the hill.
Nina, Amy and Ed were looking for revision and new mountaineering skills so we looked at avalanche avoidance, safe route choice, snow profiles, rutsch blocks, snow belays, shelters and much more, a beautiful day, warm in the sunshine and fairly sheltered from the ne winds.
