An Teallach, The Great Wildernes

Guy protects his face from a spindrift in 50mph winds on Sgurr Creag An Eich on An Teallach. Whilst the scene was epic we were aware that going all the way back along the ridge in worsening conditions would be impossible. We instead made the decision to descend straight off the edge in hopes of being sheltered from the wind. Unfortunately once down we found the wind raking across the slope and scoured ice beneath our feet.
