An early start saw us up and over Cairngorm for several abseils into to our pristine private winter climbing venue.
As normal we had the whole side of the mountain to ourselves and didn't see another person all day unlike the queues and crowds in Coire an t-Sneachda!
Despite being -7 Celcuis we felt really comfortable gearing up on the plateau in the golden morning sun.
It was really fantastic day out with Robert and with perfect alpine weather for coaching and guiding.
The aim of the day was to winterise Robert's summer rock climbing and build on his previous winter skills and winter mountaineering expedition background which we covered in depth along with climbing lots of new ground and even a second winter ascent of some new pitches.
I think Robert and his friends will be back for more soon though I can't guarantee such perfect weather ;-)
