Summit For Heroes

 Duncan & Billy on some steeper ice

This week I'm out with Pete, Billy & Duncan from the Summit For Heroes team helping them begin their preparations for an attempt on Everest in 2016. They'd already been out for a couple of days on the hill so today was about consolidating their new skills, developing some movement skills on mixed terrain and introducing ropework. We used the Aonach Mor gondala to reach the snowline and explored the area around the Nid ridge. Careful route choice kept us in the sun for most of the day!
