Day out with Will, Pete and Ian good visibility through out the day. Bittery cold wind that kept us moving. Again taught loads of winter skills including planning taking into acount of avalanche foreacasts and weather forecasts. Navigation techniques and snow packs.

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.
