Glasgow University Mountaineering Club

A weekend of contrasts

Saturday was very cold and dry with some fresh snow and sunshine. Sunday was warm and damp with some mist and rain. I was working with the Glasgow Uni Mountaineering Club teaching some winter skills.

There are some new photos from the weekend on the St John Scotland Mountain Safety Instructor Facebook Page: Glasgow University Mountaineering Club weekend Facebook photo album

A'Chioch on Beinn Bhan

Wintry at last

After 4 days of working in the North West Highlands finally today was cold and snowy. I was working for Moran Mountains on his New Year course.

We had mild conditions on 3 days with lots of rain and wind too. We climbed and navigated on the Applecross peninsula, scrambled on Skye and did some dry tooling but the highlight was the pleasant winter day out on Beinn Bhan today.
