Yesterday the weather in the Scottish Highlands ws pretty wild with 100 mph winds and blizzard conditions. We visited the ice factor and spent some time in a craggy area of the Glen practising short roping skills.
Today we visited Stob Ban in the Mamores. The avalanche category for today was ‘high’ so we avoided any open slopes or gully lines by climbing the East Ridge. This gives an excellent mountaineering route at grade II/III with lots of variety. There is lots of new snow around being blown about by strong winds. The exposed turf on the route was frozen.
