Day 2. Winter Mountaineering Course. Private guiding.

After being introduced to the ropes yesterday on Ledge Route on Ben Nevis, Paul was keen to do a slightly harder climb and with two axes.
Paul and instructor Jamie headed to Dorsal Arete in Glencoe. Two days ago it was starting to come into condition and with fresh snow fall and colder temperatures it didn't disappoint. Jamie reported good, if a little thin conditions on the rocks. The final Arete being 'interesting' due to not much build up on the ramps. All in all we have winter. We are out instructing again tomorrow. It looks a much nicer day and cold weather is promised for a few days to come. Brilliant news.
