WET AND HOPEFULL

A wet day yesterday and a wet and windy day today. Brian and I took 11 folk on a winter skills day in Glencoe. A few members of Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team as well as a few other folk from the Yorkshire area were out with us today. We went up into a very quiet Corrie an Locahan (no one there all day) and went through the basics on moveing on snow then moved on to some basic snow belays and anchors. The rain at lower levels turned to snow/hail at 850m. By late afternoon the showers eased and winds died a little too. Still lots of snow in the corrie, the gully lines still ok and Dorsal arete had lots of snow on despite the recent tropical spell.
