Hiding in the Ice Factor

Working with Ben and Dave today with some students from the West Highland College, it was supposed to be a day of outdoor rock climbing but with an inch of wet snow outside my window, plans were obviously going to change. After a quick discussion it was decided to change this weeks days around so today we spent the day in the Ice Factor with some coaching but also giving the students a chance to get some mileage so they could get their leads for CWA training. 

It snowed heavily at sea level all morning then turned to heavy rain after lunch, there is going to be a lot of fresh snow on the hills and getting anywhere is going to be time consuming and hard work. Lower lying routes will probably be the best bet for the next couple of days.
