21/02/12 to 23/02/12 Meall Nan Tarmachan and the Drummochter Pass

Traversing towards the summit of The Sow of Atholl

Over the past three days I have been moving around Scotland to avoid the worst of the rain and to look at skills such as ice axe and crampon use, transceiver searches and emergency winter shelters.

On tuesday we headed to Meall Nan Tarmachan and for the past two days we have been in the Drummochter Pass. The thaw has been extensive but large patches still exist for practicing skills.
