I've been working all week in the Cairngorms running a winter climbing course for www.tollymore.com
Its been a great week of changing conditions and climbing and the team have been good crack and met the winter challenge head on...
A change in the weather on Thursday brought all the steep mixed routes back into great condition, most other routes were already looking good, though there is now a reasonable avalanche threat in many areas. We moved away from the Runnel on Thursday due to the amount of fresh debris at its base.
A selection of shots from the week below.
