Steve on the steep ground again
Lovely morning in Sneachda
Climbers in Jacob's Ladder, not me!
Pic nic with no wind and views today
Ice on the west aspect of Pt.1141m
Nice views
Snow banks building up at the Moraines
Good fun
Nice ice
Fiacaill Buttress 
At last we got a day of calm winds, clear skies and even some sunshine! Day 4 of Steve's winter course with me. For his final day he was keen to get some more experience on steep ground. Tackling route finding, safe approaches and plenty of rope work. We went back to the west side of the Fiacaill Coire Chais, below pt.1141m. Steve enjoyed this area yesterday so he was keen to get back and experience it again. The hills were looking brilliant under a thick white coat and blue skies. Plenty of folk out walking, climbing, skiing. Quite a large group of people at the bottom section of Jacob's Ladder. Not a choice for me today in the current avalanche conditions . Good route choice a very wise idea at the moment with the cold conditions continuing into the weekend and beyond. Be avalanche aware folks!  Thanks to Steve this week. A great 4 days. Brilliant banter and I've never had a client who has been continuously cheery and great fun even in the toughest, windiest conditions. Cheers Steve.
