10-02-14, Cairngorms - Winter Skills

 Today I have been working on day 1 of a week long winter skills course at Glenmore Lodge. We walked up into Coire Laogh Mor, discussed much about avalanches and avoidance, there is plenty of wind slab up there. Looked at boot and axe work to ascend and put crampons on to ascend even higher on some scoured icy ground. The weather was fairly pleasant, views and a light breeze. The snow below 800m has been saturated and re frozen where as above it has just been blown and there is plenty of wind slab.
