A night out in the Alps
Hannah, Ed, Marie, Scott and I headed off into the Arrochar Alps on Saturday for a planned night out; to practice some snow shelter construction. We were able to build two shelters, a classic snow hole and a shovel up. I think every one slept reasonably well considering, and they were all in high spirits after some porridge this morning. (I think the sun helped too)
After leaving our camp we made a quick ascent of the Cobbler before making the trip back down to Arrochar.
As far as I could see there was only one party out climbing on the Cobbler today on the North peak.
