It has been another stunning day here in the Scottish Highlands. I have been joined for 3 days by Mick, Steve, Rick and Ben for a winter mountaineering course. For our first day we headed to the West Face of Aonach Mor and climbed Ruths Gully (1) with the boys leading the route for themselves in two teams. This allowed us to progress their summer scrambling and winter walking skills onto winter mountaineering ground with a bit of refreshment and the addition of some new skills too. A great day out and tomorrow is forecast to be just as good!
