Did swirl edge myself in December last year, even with an ice axe and crampons it was hard work.

Not as much snow as I thought there'd be!

The catastrophic loss in Glencoe has hit the whole outdoor community, it's effects have reverberated around the world. I have heard discussions about it in stores in Calgary and tea rooms in Canmore, I think because deep down inside us we all recognise that one day it could be us, I certainly escaped one last year and I'm sure I'm not the only one to do so.
