Winter mountaineering on ben nevis

Dec 28, 2013

Was out doing some winter skills training with Bristol Uni Exped Society today. A wild and windy day on Ben nevis. More details of the conditions can be found on the Ben nevis Conditions page. The guys all did well and we could consider a lot of avalanche issues today as well as looking at some axe arrest and crampon work. Heading to Glencoe tomorrow to put it all into practice on a classic Winter mountaineering ridge.

Working in a snowy Ciste.


Looking at trenching to look for slab build up.


Heading home
