Winter Mountaineering will literally blow you away......

Out with Nat, senior instructor at the Abernathy Trust, we chose to meet up at the Northern Corries and walk into Coire an t-Sneachda to cover some core winter skills, but we got pushed back by the wind. So we headed into the shelter of Coire Na Ciste to look at snow profiles and how to use the snow to create anchors for climbing and mountaineering. Some soft layers in the snow meant a single buried axe would pull out so we used a second axe to reenforce it to create a strong belay.
