Last morning with our first Arqiva group and a new team arrived at Glenmore Lodge at lunchtime. Team 1 went to a mast and after some interesting driving up snowy roads we used snow shoes and pulks to move equipment around and tested their emergency procedures using their pdas. Team 2 arrived for their intro. and day and night nav. Sneachda was thawing fast and very windy. Teams abseiled into the Seam which was quite white, the first pitch of the Genie was climbed before it thawed away and a party had a wee incident with an injured ankle after a fall from the crux of Patey's Route.
