Winter Skills

I am working this week with Edinburgh University Murray House on their winter week. The course is based around the winter ML syllabus, but pitched at the level of the student. Today I was out with Greg, Dave, Gordon and Alun. We walked into Sneachda to look at refreshing some of the skills they already had. After a session on self arrest we looked at some cramponing on the flat before heading on a journey. We walked up onto the Fiacaill Ridge and made a summer ascent of the ridge before doing a bit of bad weather nav back to the goat track. After a pleasent glissade back down, we had a leisurely walk back to the bus.
