Zig Zags, Gearr Aonach...

John, Tony and I decided to head to the Zig Zags on Gearr Aonach today in mild temperatures and steady rain showers.

The aim was to bring together many of the mountaineering skills that we have practiced in recent days: soloing, moving together and pitching.  The Zig Zag's gave us plenty of opportunity for this, as well as practicing retrievable abseils (Tony pictured).

Thanks to John and Tony for putting up with some sub-optimal weather over the last couple of days.

For me, sadly the Scottish Winter season has come to an early end as I head out to the Alps for some ski touring for the next few weeks.  I will try and continue to update the blog when between tours.  Thanks to everybody who has joined me over the course of the season...
