Stob Ban all to ourselves, lots of snow!

Feb 06, 2014

Teaching winter leading today with Stuart and Ryan. We headed for the East ridge of Stob ban which was great and very wintery. The bottom buttress was a little thin, but the upper buttress was great and provided lots of good short pitches to look at stance management, be;laying and good ropework. It was like being is a snowball at some stages. Quite a bit of fresh came down today.
