A windy skills day

It was a bit windy this morning so KC and I spent some time indoors discussing navigation techniques and practising some knots. Once the wind dropped a little we went to a great big snow drift close to the car to dig in the snow some more - as if we hadn't done enough digging on our snowhole trip! We created some snow belays, did a some basic emergency ropework and abseiling and climbed up through some little but steep cornices using the feet, axe and even the helmet!
