Warm but still lots of snow

This weekend I was out with Strathclyde Uni Mountaineering Club. On Saturday I took a team up into Allt a'Chaorainn where we did some winter skills. On Sunday we headed up into Coire na h-Uamha on the East side of Beinn a' Chaorainn where we looked at moving on steeper terrain and learnt about snow belays.

There are some photos here: Some Facebook photos. I was working as the St John Scotland Mountain Safety Instructor this weekend.
