At the end of last month return clients, Silvio and Nico came back over from Malta for some private guiding with Nathan. They both did Fiacaill Couloir in Coire an-t Sneachda before returning to prepare for an overnight expedition in The Cairngorms. During their four days with nineonesix-guiding Silvio and Nico experienced winter climbing; revised their winter skills learnt last season, camped in one of the high corries and finally practiced building snow shelters.
If you’d like to see more photos from this trip please visit Silvio’s Adventure Malta facebook page.
More or less straight after these four days Nathan headed over to Kintail to meet more of the nineonesix-guiding team for their third Winter Meet with University of Stirling Mountaineering Club. This has been posted earlier by Ian but I’d like to take the opportunity of thanking Niall and the rest of the students for choosing us once again. We all agree that it is important for students in university mountaineering clubs to have appropriate instruction in winter.
Back across in Torridon nineonesix-guiding is ready to make the best of winter conditions as and when they appear. At the end of this month we have clients booked on a winter Munros course. Mid- March we have a Torridon Winter Skills course booked at Torridon Youth Hostel with the SYHA. Cambridge University Mountaineering Club will then be joining us in The Cairngorms for their second winter meet.
There are still plenty of opportunities for winter climbing, mountaineering, Munros or intro- skills. Get in touch to arrange something with one of our winter MLs or MICs.
