A real change in the weather for the start of the Winter Skills Weekend. With Nigel, Andy, Luke, David, Al and Louis we’ve been up on  Stob Coire Raineach the northern top of Buachaille Etive Beag. Along the way we covered a lot of the movement skills involved in using and ice axe and crampons effectively. From the summit we descended to the north using the route that Russ, Jonathan and me had tried to ascend in the howling wind of Wednesday.
