Winter Skills Weekend
I have been joined for the weekend by Alan, Rob, Tom, Becky, Luke and Simon for a winter skills course here in Scotland. It has been a generally bright day with just the odd showers and much lighter winds than forecast giving a great day for teaching. We spent lots of time looking at avalanche avoidance as well as the core skills of axe and crampon work. I go straight from here to Norway for our ice climbing week so blog posts may be quiet for a few days, don't worry it's only logistics!
