Winter Skills Week

Due to the lack of internet access I haven't bee able to update my blog recently. I have however been busy in the mountains. Starting off the week I climbed Twisting Grooves in Glen Coe with another Gaz, a nice fun but short day out. The rest of the week I ran a winter skills course, introducing crampons and axes, then progressing on to grade 1 ground with ascents of the Bauchile and Stob Corie nan Lochan in Glen Coe. Other days (when the weather was warm and stormy) looked at navigation and climbing steep ice at the ice factor. The weather was a challenge at times, but everyone had fun, learnt lots and went away keen for more!
