Learn to Lead on Ice
The lads and I visited Stob Coire nam Beith today. We found some shelter from the ferocious winds and the team did a great job leading a four pitch ice route near An t Sron at about grade III.
There are lots of single and multi pitch ice routes currently present in the coire that are not in the guidebook. These provide great opportunities for learning to lead without the commitment of being on a big route.
