Yesterday David and I started the first day of his Ben Nevis Winter weekend. We headed up to Aonach Mor to make the most of the excellent snow conditions. In this brilliant Winter 'classroom', we covered step kicking, step cutting, ice axe arrest and cramponing. We also had a go digging some emergency shelters which was rather hard going in some hard snow/ice!).
Dave B was also out for us today with Virginia who also put in a sterling performance on the mountain.
Overall a great couple of days and thanks to David for being superb company on the hill.
