Winter Skills Practice

Out with Dave Ascough for preparation for our upcoming Winter ML assessment.

We looked at avalanche awareness and found some weak layers on the West slopes of Carn Mor Dearg whilst digging test pits. Also looked at various snow anchors and belays as well as movement on snow and ice. Beautiful weather, looks like the Ben is shaping up nicely, quite a lot of ice forming already!
