Day 2

Second day of my Glenmore Lodge winter skills course today. We had a mixture of showers and very fine weather and, as promised, much lighter winds. We went back to Sneachda for a bit more cramponing on the flat ice. Then we moved up on the steeper ground beneath the Mess of Pottage, looking at trenching to assess the snow and on through windy col to .1141. From here we dropped down the Cas ridge to do some self arrest practise and look at walking Rutschblocks.
