Winter inside on Monday.

I woke to pouring rain and high winds on Monday, this seemed to be the nail in the coffin for winter in Glencoe, but perhaps not on the Ben?
I was to head out with Tom and Graham to ascend a snow gully. Tom had bought the day for his dad in a charity raffle for the Linda Norgrove Foundation, but for the first time this season I considered inside, we opted for an indoor day at the ice wall and on the rock wall. This turned out to be a brilliant move as we had an awesome day looking at movement, belaying, anchor set ups and ice climbing.
