Today the weather forecast was pretty horrible. We opted to do a bit of a ropework session in doors before heading into Glencoe. This turned out to be a good decision, as the weather was reasonable in the afternoon. As we picked our way up the path toeards Lochain, we cut down to the burn and scrambled up this to work on crampon use and movement skill. this helped gain height and we soon found some deep sonw to dig in. Although soft, we managed to look at snow anchors and test them in this wet, heavy snow. Time ran away as usual and we walked back out to the bus.

Rich Bentley had climbed Original Route, but commented that the areas around Broad Gully were not looking ideal.
