Wet, wet, wet.
A very damp day today. Not too much to say about conditions really, we stayed low in an attempt to stay out of the forecast wind again. We headed up and down the zig zags looking at rope work and decision making whilst moving over mountaineering terrain. Heavy rain fell all day down to about 600m, the snow pack is heavily saturated at this level but higher up more snow fell maintaining the 'High' avalanche forecast for tomorrow. All of this snow and fluctuating temps might make for difficult conditions at the moment but it looks promising for the rest of the winter. No photos today it was just too wet to get the camera out. Today was day 3 of the Abacus Mountain Guides Winter Mountaineering course.
