Training in the Cairngorms

Over the weekend the team spent time training in the Cairngorms. During the weekend we covered some basic snow and ice techniques including walking on snow, use of crampons, winter equipment and how to use an ice axe. We managed to get ourselves onto some quite steep ground in Corrie Cas and we also took the opportunity to make use of the high winds. As training weekends go – the Cairngorms provided excellent conditions. On the Sunday we had a more restful day looking at rope work and some of the basics of crevasse rescue in the very controlled environment of the Avimore Bridge Inn Car park.

Below are some photos from the weekend.
