Mixed Magic

Today Simon, Jacqui and I went into Sneachda again. We climbed on the mixed ground to the right of Jacob's Ladder. This offered a massive range of climbing, from ice, turf and rock. As they led we had the chance to look at placing ice screws and turf gear, as well as more runner placements, belay construction and stance management. There were teams on Jacob's, the Slant, Hidden Chimney and the Direct start. More teams were spread around the corrie. A strong wind was present for most of the day which was moving alot of snow. On descent down the Fiacaill Corrie Cas there was fresh windslab evident on the head wall.
