Winter skills and crevasses...




I was out with Colin, Amy and Iain today looking at basic ice axe and crampon skills.
It was a nice settled day with good firm snow conditions for cramponning across to and up Coire Laogh Mor. The snow has refrozen and is already quite icy in places. Over the next few days the snow will refreeze harder and harder making crampons and good technique essential even on quite moderate terrain and on the plateau. The remaining corrie rim cornices look stable but have interesting creep crevasses from the recent thaw...
