Mountaineering skills course in Cairngorms today.
Today I was working on day one of an introduction to winter mountaineering course for a group of outdoor students from a College in Devon. Danny Goodwin and I, had a busy day looking at skills ranging from basic walking skills through to the beginnings of snow belaying and mixed ground climbing. The weather improved through the day and the freezing level dropped as the day went on! Its looking great for Cairngorms tomorrow. Couple of friends climbed Oesophagus in Corie an Lochan today, they said it was very pleasant. It's great to be over east for a while! www.hebrideanpursuits.com
