13/03/14 - Lochnagar
The first-aid box on Lochnagar's corrie has been successfully found and dug out; there was 2.5 m compacted snow above it. Whilst we were there we witnessed numerous avalanches/cornice collapses down Parallel A, B and Raeburn's. This one down Parallel A sent debris to within 100m of the loch. The apron below the major gullies is not a good place to be right now; and there are still some big cornices in both corries.


23/02/14 - Inver Quarry
Sunday's training was moved to a low level crag due to the avalanche risk on Lochnagar. The picture of Lochnagar after Sunday's thaw confirms it was the right decision.



19/02/14 - Snowholing
Some of the team were out on a snow-holing overnight exercise. It was good until temperatures rose early Thursday morning and everything started to drip.

15/02/14 - Argo XTI
The newest addition to the team fleet: the Argo XTI. Originally an ATV designed for checking pipelines in the Canadian Arctic; the Argo will serve as a combined winter and summer fast-and-light vehicle for access to remote areas. Given the depth of snow cover on the high tops this year, these lightweight rubber tracks are a worthwhile addition…

Team training near Carn an Tuirc; good conditions for winter skills.
