05-02-12, Cairngorms - Winter Skills
This weekend I have been working in the Cairngorms on a weekend Winter Skills course for Glenmore Lodge. The weather was quite bad on Saturday, with 50-60mph winds, sleet and snow added for extra pain! Today was much better and gave a more friendly learning environment for the group. They used their earlier acquired skills of walking with crampons and ice axe and navigation to summit Cairngorm. The freezing level was quite low and there is still plenty of snow about, from what I could see the corries were still looking reasonably white.
