BMC Club Training Program

Enjoying some steep snow on the Nid Ridge

This weekend I'm working for Adele Pennington Mountaineering on the BMC Club Training Program. With a fast retreating snow pack we opted to use the Aonach Mor Gondala to reach the reliable snow fields around the Nid Ridge. The day was spent developing and perfecting many of the skills of a winter mountaineer focusing on footwork and movement skills or step, slash, stomp, slip, slide & stop (before splat!)
