Winter Climbing and Winter Walking Skills Courses over the last three days.
Winter is still firmly in charge in The Highlands. Today we were running a winter walking skills course in Glencoe. Jamie took a Venture Scouts Group out onto and up 'The Little Buachaille' whilst ascending they concentrated on essential skills for venturing into the Scottish mountains in winter. The Scout group will be back out tomorrow. Over the last three days we have also been running a winter climbing course. Scott was instructing a team of four in all things winter mountaineering and climbing. They headed on Friday for Glencoe, on Saturday for West Gully on Ben Nevis and today Sron Na Larig in Glencoe. We will post some photos when they come in from our instructors. If you fancy a spring winter mountaineering course do get in touch. There is plenty of snow and ice left.
