Flashback Friday 2

October 2001 (?) with Matt Leggett Not all weekends in October have good weather. Back in about October 2001, Matt and I wanted to climb, and have some fun, so we lowered each other down to the storm level on Wen Slab, and then climbed out of the maelstrom. It was an ‘adventure’! We won’t […]...

Devil’s Ridge And Snowmen

  On Tuesday I was with Steve and Paul to do Sgurr an Lubhair (ex-Munro), the Devil’s Ridge and Sgurr a Mhaim (Munro) in the Mamores. On the drive to the car park we could see that there was snow higher up from the night before, so we were all excited to get our first […]...

3 Wise Monkeys

Last night climbing in the Glen was fabulous – almost no midges, no crowds, the rock was warm, and the fading sun was brilliant. I didn’t get back to the van until 9.55pm – these are the days to make the most of the long days and great weather. Then this morning, I was in […]...

The day was aimed at refreshing/developing navigation on the hill, and it was a training day organised by Susan Nicol of the Friends of Nevis […]...

Intro Winter / Learn To Lead

My last work of the 2015-16 winter season was a weekend with Karianne and Sam – learning to lead in winter and develop the efficiency of all things winter and leading. Saturday was a pretty wet day – it rained ALL day, so even by the time we had walked up into Coire nan Lochan, […]...

Navigation Refresher

Today I was with Lizzie, Ruari and Eve on a mountain navigation refresher. The team chose to focus on micro navigation, reduction of inaccuracies, and various nav strategies as well as poor visibility nav. The event today was organised by Susan Nicol of the Nevis Landscape Partnership. Further events can be found here –   http://www.nevislandscape.co.uk/local/events/ […]...

Day Out With Friends

Today I jumped on a plan that Gemma and Lena had already made, so it ended up being the 3 of us that went out for the day. They chose to go to Ben Nevis, and look for a climb. After some chat regarding time, fresh snow, train breaking, avalanche risk and crowds we ended […]...

Leading Up Dorsal Arete

  Hunter Mountaineering – Private Guiding Today was Jo’s last day with me, although she has quite a few more days up here to enjoy before she’s off home again. We took a long time to decide what to do, threw lots of ideas around, lots of reading of forecasts, and maps. Finally at about […]...

Ledge & Down 4

  Hunter Mountaineering – Private Guiding Today Jo and I did Ledge route, which turned out to be hugely sociable, with many other teams on it – all with familiar friendly faces guiding the teams – Steve, Sam, Adele, Chris and Ed. Jo then organised an excellent snow bollard at the top of Number 4 […]...

Number 3 & 4

  Hunter Mountaineering – Private Guiding I met Jo yesterday and she is preparing for her WML assessment. We made a plan today to climb some grade I gullies on Ben Nevis, look at the conditions, and look at a little ropework, but keeping it simple. Just below the top of Number 3 Gully, we […]...
