More from Aberfeldy

I was down at Aberfeldy on Friday working with Stuart Johnston and a Climbmts course then more on Friday evening and Saturday for Stuart's Edinburgh Tiso Winter Skills course.
On Friday we were over at Schiehallion and whilst it started off as a fair weather day, we all ended up rather wet! The temperature had been around +11c when I left Aviemore early in the morning and it actually got a bit colder as I headed south. The snow was soggy still but useful for looking at steep ground techniques.
So a quick trip down to Edinburgh and an even briefer visit to my Mum then I was back up to the Ben Lawers area this morning where it was quite a contrast to have colder temperatures and sunshine over on Meall Corainnich as we practiced movement skills, snow and weather, how to use the axe and a brief look at cramponning, the snow was just too soft but we found some great patches of ice to play on! A few snowy showers blew over us as the day went on.
