Lots of wind and bollards!
A very windy day with gust of over 100mph. Erica, Kris and I decided to head into the more sheltered Coire Laugh Mor to practise winter ropework as we pitched up the coire snow slopes avoiding the heavily corniced slopes on the right.
The guys enjoyed throwing themselves headfirst down the slope while testing the snow belays using dynamic waist belays! We then abseiled off our bollards for a late lunch before wading back through the deep soft snow to plan for a hopefully less windy day tomorrow...
