Ken: For the fourth day of our Advanced Winter Climbing Course, Henry took Kev and Diggy to Beinn an Dothaidh, where they climbed Cirrus. Whilst a bit lean and tricky for the grade,the ice that’s there is good, and the route is well worth climbing at the moment.
Our Winter Mountaineering Course ventured to Beinn a’Chaorainn, where we climbed the brilliant East Ridge, which Freya, Rich and Tom led throughout. The snow, as everywhere in the Highlands, is bullet hard, but fortunately, with huge steps all the way.
Finally, Lou was out with Mick, Jake and Brian in and around Ruth, on the West Face of Aonach Mor. Unfortunately, they dropped a Black Diamond Viper Axe (black, hammer) today, so if anyone comes across it, please get in touch.
