Stob Coire nan Lochan...

I joined Scott, Iain, John and Chris today for three days of mountaineering and an introduction to winter climbing.

Having had the pleasure of working with the team before, we decided to pretty much get straight into the thick of it.  Heading into Stob Coire nan Lochan we spent a fair bit of time doing some basic ropework and snow belays - essential skills for the days ahead.

The weather was forecast to deteriorate but just after mid-day the winds were still light.  Looking up it was clear that the crowds had cleared from Dorsal Arete (II) so we fired up this in good time.  Scott is pictured leading up to the top.

The corrie was busy today with a team's on 'Unicorn' VIII,8, 'Central Grooves' VII,7, and 'East Face Direct Direct' VII,7...
