Cairngorm - putting winter skills into practice

Today Debbie, James, Nick, Tim and I did lots of navigation and found a suitable place to put into use the skills we all practiced yesterday. We also found a large, cosy snowhole which was just perfect for a lunch break.
We had a dig around in the snow and found old neve with an icy layer above then windslab on top of that. It was great for climbing up and down through mini cornices before the mist came down and gave us the ideal conditions for navigating over to the summit of Cairngorm.
