Warm, wet and windy

Second day working with Hans and Nick at the Glenmore Lodge Winter Climbing Festival and there was a distinct lack of winter. We chatted with the team and rather than risk cornice collapse and rockfall for damp easy climbing we decided to use the facilities at the Lodge. Hans took the lead coaching dry tooling on the towers in the morning, Roger from Lyon did an informative session on materials looking at ropes, abseil tat and helmets I went through the Be Avalanche Aware process and we finished with a little rope work and some more tooling on the towers.
Best of luck to the BMC International meet which has just begun, winter is going to be a little scarce for a while.
