After the weekend off we’re back into things with a Three Day Winter Mountaineering Course. With the weather back to the more familiar high winds and rain we all headed east to the Cairngorms where the weather forecast was promising a window of opportunity in the morning. Whilst Rob and Martin were making their way up Aladdin’s Couloir and Another Unnamed Groove (that is its real name) Brain, Richard and me were climbing further along the main cliff of Coire an t-Sneachda firstly on Crotched Gully into Spiral Gully and then back down and round for a second lap with Red Gully. As predicted the weather was getting wilder during the walk back to the van.
