Windy and Wet

Another stormy day up in Scotland.  Today I was working for Abacus Mountaineering with Alex. Out of the various options he went for a skills day, to keep out of the weather higher up.  In the morning we used Onich Slab and the rock beneath Ballachulish Bridge for some dry tooling technique.  He particularly enjoyed the slab which offers a variety of ledges to hook and stand on over 25m. This afternoon we went to the ice factor to develop his ice climbing technique, next stop Point 5 (once the blue skies return).

Higher up the snow level dropped to around 600m at a guess but with a change in temperatures this afternoon it was rapidly being washed into the rivers.  Still with cold temperatures again tomorrow it will give the snow higher up a chance to stabilise.

I have put together a facebook site in my spare time, see Sea 2 Summit Facebook
