Intro Winter Climb course today and some Winter landscapes from courses this season.

It has been the most beautiful winter in Scotland and especially on the west coast. High pressure has dominated and the clarity of the air has been so memorable. The West Coast has been tremendous for all winter adventures. The climbing, walking, skiing conditions have all been brilliant. Although we have not had quiet as much snow as on the east we have had the sunshine. I have only personally worn a water proof jacket twice since October!
Jo and Jordan were out with HPL on day one of their Intro to Winter Lead Climbing Course today with instructor Jamie B. They lead climbed NC Gully in Glencoe. Reports are of great conditions and a progressive and fun day.  Sorry no photos yet of their adventures but here are a few landscapes of Scotland Outside at it's best from the last few weeks.
