Beinn Eighe

Despite the lack of snow and the poor weather forecast Chris, Tom, Gareth and Philip had an excellent day on Beinn Eighe. Basics were refreshed in Coire an Laoigh before making our way up a broad gully on the north side to the summit of Spidean Coire nan Clach.  The team used a combination of bucket seats and buried axe snow anchors to belay each other on the way up. For the descent we built a snow bollard and abseiled over the small cornice at the head wall of the corrie.
