Gareth, Neil and Dave on the summit of Sgurr Mor

Intro to winter climbing

Been working in the North West highlands for Martin this last week. I've had some great days out with Gareth, Neil and Dave.

Fuar Tholl, Liathach, Dry tooling, Meall Gorm and the highlight, Resurrection on Sgurr Mor. A mixed week of weather with some windy wet warm fronts and a few ridges of high pressure too.

Ian on the SW Ridge of the Douglas Boulder

Spring is here!

It may be Metrological Spring but the Scottish Mountains seem to follow the astronomical calendar more closely.

The last few days I've been out with father and son team, Ian and John. We've enjoyed the water ice on Lurcher's Crag in the East and the very snowy mountains of Glencoe and Lochaber.
