Glimpses of sun and crisp neve

There were stars in the sky last night and the resulting freeze was just what was needed to give some lovely neve for us to skip across on Aonach Mor today. We also enjoyed some lovely views when the clouds parted as well as some proper white out navigation when they didn't! We were able to use the neve to perfect ice axe arrest and crampon technique, looked at the use of a rope to approach an edge in winter and did some great poor visibility nav to the summit. Another great Scottish winter day out!
