Kelvyn demonstarting the 'Ribena' test
erm, I think that was an easy sheer?
Lets go somewhere else to play
Lets go sliding
Here we go
Snow hole City
I had a fun day out with Kelvyn and Matt who have been up in The Highlands this last week gaining some hill days toward their up coming Winter Mountain Leader Assessment in March. Theyve crammed lots of excellent days out this week, in hard conditions. This was their last wee foray onto the hills to brush up on Avalanche assessment, some sliding and some snow anchors. It was another day of deep snow. WE headed into the Ciste Corrie, then over to Coire Laoigh Mor. We found some weaknesses in the snowpack and some quite easy shears, one snowpit reveeling a full 50cm shear. It was another cold day with sub zero temps above 600m. A few light snow flurries and poor visability at times. Good fun.
