Mountain skills assessment

Out with a group of second years yesterday from the UHI on their assessment of their mountain skills. Max and I headed towards the East ridge of Beinn a Choarinn with our groups but there looked to be a bit too much snow on the ridge and we had decided not to bring any winter kit with us. The group I was with picked their way up a faint ridge just south of the 1049m south summit looking at group management on steep ground and then carried on over to the summit looking at a couple of ways of  'winterising' their navigation. We then descended South and back to the bus. Congratulations to everyone, with everyone putting in a strong performance.
