Heading East

Started my winter of work at Glenmore Lodge today. For the next couple of weeks I'm working with staff from Arqiva. These engineers maintain the masts that give us a TV signal and find themselves dealing with issues in relatively remote locations and some quite extreme weather. So they are at Glenmore Lodge to learn a little about the effects of this weather and what they can do about it. Today we introduced the course, looked at personal clothing and equipment and spent some time looking a navigation strategies. as with everything on the course the idea is to make it as relevant to their working environment as possible so I'm not up in the high hills until the weekend when I'm climbing again in the west.
There were staff in the Northern Corries today reporting slowly building ice and a moist snowpack that should improve as it freezes.
