Snow anchors and Cairngorm summit

In complete contrast to the crowds of last week, we enjoyed the peace and quiet of the Coire Cas headwall today sharing it only with a couple of ptramigans. Tom, Chris, Eleanor, Becky and I spent the first part of the day digging out snow belays and practising dynamic belaying. Once we had finished we got the crampons on and made our way up the ridge to have a look at the cornice and then on to look into Coire an t-Sneachda where Tom, Chris and Eleanor will be going tomorrow for a climbing day with Ron. We carried on to the summit of Cairngorm, Eleanor's first Munro!
The weather was kind to us with light winds and good snow for winter skills practice and views too!
Thanks again to Becky for her help over the past few days.
