For the penultimate day of our 5-day Introduction to Winter Climbing Course, we decided to tackle the ENE Ridge of Sgurr Bhan, AKA School House Ridge. Overnight, the temperatures had dropped further and we were also treated to a sprinkling of snow down to sea level.
Access to School House Ridge is quite straight forward, and allows a fairly swift ascent, with a number of tricky steps thrown in for good measure. This gave us plenty of opportunities to look at being efficient with the rope and a look at a number of different belays. We went to the summit of Sgorr Bhan to take in the stunning views, before descending the North Ridge. The Scottish Highlands were at their best today!
