Navigation and snowholes






Sue, John, Paul and I navigated our way up to Ciste Mhearad today and it was certainly less windy than yesterday!
We found a big snowhole to hide away in for lunch before digging our own emergency shelters and looking at snow profiles and talking about avalanche awareness.
Unfortunately, we found two candles that had been left behind in the big snowhole. Not good as these add to the litter that appears when all the snow melts. We brought the candles out with us! Ciste Mhearad was quite busy today with a couple of other skills groups and a happy group of young ski tourers. All very sociable.
Ron had an interesting semi-axeless climb...look here for more info http://www.talisman-activities.co.uk/blog/mountain_diary.htm
