Boulders and bollards

Following our two day expedition we had an easier if somewhat damp day looking at basic ropework, snow and rock belays. We found some great erratics and a perfectly shaped snow bollard boulder before we started digging in the actual spring sugar snow. The heathery ground was still frozen and surprisingly icy in some places.
Both Ben and Eamonn were impressed by the strength of the snow anchors in the soft sugary snow and their own ability to hold sliding falls using dynamic waist belaying!!!
