05-03-10, Aonach Mor - Winter Skills

Today I was working for Jagged Globe on the West. It was the last day of an Introduction to Mountaineering Course. We headed to Aonach Mor to do some navigation and have a journey to the summit. It was back to normal Scottish winter, with horizontal slushy snow and strong winds. We managed to navigate over to the Nid ridge and walked up to the top Station. Because we were in a whiteout and with strong westerly winds we decided not to go to the summit in order to safely avoid the cornices. Hopefully the temperature will get colder again and freeze up the slush!
