Teams out on winter walking skills courses over the last few days.

It has been a mixed old couple of days in the mountains here in Scotland. Yesterday we were working in Glencoe in a torrent of rain combined with 81 mph squalls and today we headed up to the north face of Ben Nevis to run the training day. We saw climbers retreating from a variety of routes today but a party climbed Green Gully and other middle grade buttresses were ascended, yet all reporting alot of spindrift. Colder and drier today and it certainly felt more like winter. The photos tell the story.
