Day two of winter mountaineering course in the Cairngorms.

Day two in the Cairngorms with the College students from Devon. We headed to the twin ribs in Coire an Sneachda and had a fun day looking at leading on a variety of ground. The weather was a little wilder than expected which was fantastic as the students really enjoyed the exposed nature of the ridge once they had topped out. After descending the steep snow we walked around into the back of the corrie to have a look at what was being climbed and to look at some ice techniques. Parties were on various routes, pretty busy for a Tuesday! Patey's route, Red Gully, Goat Track Gully were all being climbed. A really great day out with a fun bunch of young people, back out in the morning, can't wait!
