A little peace and quiet

We walked just a little further today to avoid the worst of the crowds and went to the little coire between Fiacaill Ridge and Coire an Lochain. The snow was just a little firmer up high today and may improve further in cooler temperatures over the next day or two. the main gully lines are still there in Sneachda and there is some pleasant climbing around the coires if you throw the guidebook away and think outside the box.
Day 3 of our winter mountaineering course and we wanted to look at rock anchors. We found a nice patch of ice to start up and looked at various methods of belaying in a mountain context over a few pitches. today I was working for Glenmore Lodge.
