Iain and Anthony on Curved Ridge

Scrambling in Glencoe

The last two days I was out with the University of Stirling Mountaineering Club. I was working in my role as St John Scotland Mountain Safety Instructor.

On Saturday we climbed Curved Ridge on Buachaille Etive Mor. It was pleasantly spring like with sunshine and blue skies. It was very hazy and we had a light southerly breeze.

On the Sunday we traversed the Aonach Eagach. There was a lot of low cloud as a front arrived from the north which eventually brought rain.

Max from the Napier Rock Climbing Club

Spring is here

This weekend I was out with Napier University Rock Climbing Club. I was working in my role as St John Scotland Mountain Safety Instructor.

On Saturday we ventured into the Northern Corries where we found enough snow to do some winter skills.

On the Sunday we climbed at Kingussie. Apart from the cool breeze it was a warm spring day of rock climbing.
