Deep drifts and lots of queues

The first day of the Talisman New Year winter mounatineering course and traffic queues on the ski road through Glenmore meant we turned back at Loch Morlich to find an alternative location a bit nearer to home. We waded and swam through deep drifts to reach our summit in a brief spell of sunshine. Chad, Matt, Stepehen, Gareth and I then returned to Aviemore to meet up with Dan who had been diverted to Edinburgh airport yesterday when Inverness was closed. After a chat about winter kit and a look at crampon fitting, we're all set for another day out tomorrow.
Happy New Year!
