Sunshine and snow!

I'm out with Angus and Garry this weekend who want to build on their leading. With snow down to sea level again overnight we decided to stay low to avoid the wade through all the snow. We headed for the Ribs on Meall an t-shuide above Fort William, the main rib is a grade 2 summer scramble and I had heard it was an alright grade II in winter. The guys did a great job of leading themselves up in 5 pitches with a little coaching from me and I took over for the final 100m to take us to the top. The route was great for what we needed and we got to climb in the sun all day. I was working for Abacus Mountain Guides.
