Shelters in Sneachda

Heading out of Sneachda

For the last day of the course Peter, Adrian, Paul and I headed into Coire an t Sneachda to look at some more crampon skills plus some emergency techniques, whilst staying fairly low as the winds were due to be high.

We navigated into the rescue box and then used the slopes above to look at some steep ground crampon techniques and discuss a little more avalanche assessment. From here we headed around to the lateral moraines and due some emergency shelters before heading up onto the ridge and back down to the van through the ski area.

A great week with good company and some great weather days.
