First taste of winter!

I was out with Colin and his son Alastair today to give him his first taste of Scottish winter. We headed up into Stob Coire nan Lochain and with compact snow on the path and a hard frost in the glen we had crampons on from very early stage which gave Alastair plenty of time to get use to them before we started climbing. Once in the coire things starting to warm up a bit and the snow was soft, we headed up to NC gully and topped out in quick time and Alastair was chuffed with his first route. Things were a little damp in Glencoe but it sounds like things on the Ben are holding on a little better.
