Soggy snow anchors

Today on the Abacus Mountain Guides Winter Mountaineering course we headed up in to Coire na Tulaich on the Bauchaille to look at snow anchors. It doesn't take long before you hit the snow so the short approach meant we made the most of the day. Lots of digging done today and although the top few inches of snow are wet and soft there were some icy layers lower down making digging hard work at times today. The team did well and we made lots of short pitches looking at all of the different anchors we have in our tool box and when to use them.
