Strathclyde University Mountaineering Club

Another windy and snowy weekend in Glencoe

Not quite as cold as last weekend but with the freezing level between 500m and 900m there was plenty of new snow up high and plenty of rain low down. I was working with Strathclyde University Mountaineering Club teaching some winter walking and mountaineering skills.

St Andrews University Mountaineering Club

A wild, windy and snowy weekend in the west

I was out over the weekend in Glen Etive and Glencoe with St Andrews University Mountaineering Club teaching some winter walking and mountaineering skills. The Saturday was extremely windy with gusts knocking us all over on the hill even at 500m up Lairig Eilde. Sunday was a much less windy day although there was a fair bit of wading in all the fresh snow.
