The Cairngorms 05-08/03/13

I've been working all week in the Cairngorms running a winter climbing course for

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.
