Elphin Meet Report 17/18th Jan ’15

 

15 people braved the snow to arrive at the GSG hut on Friday night. The fire was lit and discussions about the next day were had.

5 groups set off on saturday morning with the hope of clear weather.

Gina, Alan and Michael G enjoyed great views from Canisp, with a very graceful topple near the top from Alan.

Ian D, Ian M, Carol, Anush and Jim were feeling energetic and so trekked from the hut to Canisp (but caught a lift back). The underfoot conditions were good for playing with crampons once they had got over the heather/bog (after turning off the road a bit too early….)

Ewen and Andreas headed to the Bone caves and over Beinn nan Cnaimhseag, Peter, Marion and Robin doing a similar walk in reverse.

Mel and Ian Mitchell went for a wander near the bone caves, practised ice axe arrests and then lunched on the path between loch assynt and Suileag bothy with amazing views of Quinag.
