Out and about around Carn Gorm

On Wednesday I drove down to Aberfeldy to work on Stuart Johnston's Climbmts winter mountain leader training course for the expedition.
We walked in to the hills above Glen Lyon and found a suitable snowhole site close to Carn Gorm. The firm snow was excellent for walking on and it was crampons practically all day on both Thursday and Friday. It was hard work digging though but the guys soon had a comfortable four man snowhole and I had a little Fi-sized snowhole! Overnight it was exceedingly cold but no wind and an almost full moon made it a lovely night.
Carn Gorm and Meall Garbh were "bagged" on our way back out.
