Adventure Malta Cairngorms Expedition

We were joined at the weekend by a team from Adventure Malta for an expedition in the Cairngorms. Before heading onto the hill some of the team had never seen snow and the contrast from 28 degrees at home to minus 5 on the hill was quite a shock! However the team were well equipped and after setting up a base camp in Corie an Lochain we made our way to the summit of Lurchers crag.

The second day was spent on a journey around the corrie, introducing the key winter skills of use of crampons and ice axes, self arrest and navigation.

The team got to experience a full range of scottish conditions, from stunning clear views to some good scottish whiteout and were given a final test while striking camp on sunday by a wind gusting to 50 mph!

A very rewarding and entertaining expedition, already looking forward to next year!
