Day out with Will, Pete & Ian, white out conditions experienced over the peaks poor visibility for the majority of the day.

Taught loads about walking in winter conditions including planning walks taking into account weather forecasts and avalanche guides, how to travel using crampons and ice axe, snow pack, how to travel with out crampons, navigation techniques etc.

Area : The Cairngorms

The Cairngorms are ‘a little piece of the arctic in Scotland’ according to the SMC Munros Guide and the area contains many of the tallest peaks in the East Highlands. Ben Macdui (1309m), Cairn Gorm (1244m) and Braeriach (1296) are probably three of the better known and the whole area is full of steep corries and high plateaux. Access to the mountains is typically from Aviemore or Braemar.
