Winter ropework and ice threads

Today we looked at basic winter ropework and simple belays. The snow was too deep and soft for ice axe belays so we made good use of natural threads and ice screw V-threads. In the afternoon the the wind increased and heavy snow showers arrived. With so much snow around any winds are going to created huge drifts and cornices on sheltered aspects..! More photos here
