Winter Skills in the Cairngorms

A breezy day for the first of a 5 days of Winter Skills at Glenmore Lodge. The snow was being stripped from some aspects and deposited on others. Donald was able to find some really good scoured slopes left of Jacob's Ladder for his Intro to winter climbing and my team visited the end of the Fiacaill Ridge to look at footwork and self belay and moved over to the ground above the moraines to do some cramponing. Looks like a little less wind tomorrow.
