It was back to the snowy mountains again today for Seereen and I. It was another day of navigation training in the white stuff on Aonach Mor. A good day for it with low cloud and poor visibility so more realistic than yesterdays foray on summer like hills and distant views! We headed up onto The Nid for a bit more steep ground then navigation to the summit using pacing and timing techniques. Some slumping cornices around on the East face with big cracks. It was probably just above freezing in the afternoon, a bit of rime ice on the plateau but only a light breeze. Seereens' back to Norway tomorrow to put the winter skills into action! Another decent day tomorrow before a change in the weather mid week.
