One of the best days of the year so far weather-wise though very busy in the ski and climbing areas given the limited snow cover.
Lot's of climbers on lots of routes with even Coire an Lochain looking busy!!
To avoid the masses we headed off towards the mixed ground on Fiacaill Ridge with our MPS students. Jonathan, Robbie, Jonny, Henry, Arno and myself were fortunate to have a great vantage point for the goings on in the main climbing area and the place to ourselves. Both the mountaineering and the climbing teams looked at rope-work and leading as they climbed up towards the the ridge crest on progressively good snow. A couple of the committee, after a good day on the Seam yesterday, headed over to Coire an Lochain. They climbed Central Crack Route and said the coire was very busy with climbers from the International Climbing Meet and even a film crew before the SAR arrived!
Fi's MPS winter walking group had a great day too as they traversed the mountain looking at navigation, avalanche awareness and emergency rope skills. They even managed to get some unique 'Sun Dog' photos! See Fi's blog for more details here ,Jonny's MPS Facebook photos here and Arno's photos here and our Facebook album here!
