29-01-15, Beinn a' Bheithir, Ballachulish - Winter Mountaineering
Sgorr Dhearg, Beinn a' Bhethir.
Plenty of new snowfall overnight and into the morning, with freezing level well down to sea level. We initially had a false start, but regained control and went winter mountaineering on ENE ridge (School House Ridge) of Sgorr Bhan part of the Ballachulish Horseshoe. We were rewarded to fine views of Glen Coe.
The interest on School House Ridge.
Ascending snow slopes on the approach to ENE ridge.
