It has been pretty wet in the Highlands today! Russel, Mark and I were joined by Ben for the second day of our winter skills course. We headed up Buachaille Etive Beag and as well as ticking the summit of this Munro we looked at snow stability and emergency shelters along the way. We managed a bit of crampon practice but the very soggy snow was not ideal. It was above freezing on the tops which is exactly what we need together with a good re freeze to create some great conditions for us to make the most of all of this snow.
