27th and 28th January

Saturday I was running an Intro to winter mountaineering with Dermot, Peter and Rushden we climbed Nc gully in Stob coire nan Lochain noticing some wet snow sloughs from that area of the coire and avoiding the drooping cornices.
Sunday we climbed the East ridge of Beinn a Choarainn and the lads quickly picked up the technique of effecienctly moving together.
The snow coverege is holding well in high north east facing corries but is being stripped by the warm winds and rain elsewhere.
