Hannah peering over the cornice.

Winter ML skills on Aonach Mor.
After my day out with Hannah last week when the weather was pretty nasty we head up to the Nid area again. For today Hannah had put some thought into the things she wanted to look at or revisit. We made our way round the bottom of the Nid to keep an eye out for any good spots to practice ice axe arrest later in the day. We put our crampons on and headed up hill. One of the things Hannah wanted to look at was managing a group on steeper ground so we had a look at bringing people up or lowering them and also built a bollard so Hannah could protect herself as she abseiled over the cornice to check the slope below.
