On th rock
Snow & rock
Mostly snow in the coire
Colin enjoying the fun
Check out the drops
In the cloud
Nesrly there
Final section in the cold
Young Finlay findingit a doddle
Hard going in very damp snow on plateau

Plenty of friendly snow buntings in the coire

Snow trenching

Cotswold Outdoor Store, Livingston are out with me this weekend for some adventurous mountain days. Two groups over two days. A mixture of staff and their customers who are now regular clients on my winter and summer courses. We headed into Coire an t-Sneachda for some snow skills before heading up onto the Fiacaill Ridge. All the pinnacles are now largely clear of snow but there are some small areas of the white stuff to tackle, spicing it up. It was a warm, clear day in the coire but some high level cloud and a stiff SE breeze quickly got us grabbing our warmer layers. No heatwave up here. Well done to the team of 4 including young Finlay who is fast becoming a budding rock star and Alpiniste.
