The hills looked particularly wind blasted this morning from the Ski road, crags still looked quite black from afar. There are some reports out there of O.K. winter conditions up in the N. Corries. The winter machine that is Andy Nisbet was out and about for a look and James Thacker along with Kris Hill looked like they made the most of it on Stirling Bomber.
I’m off up tomorrow for a wee look about with Dunc, don’t think we’ll go for a super early start as the winds sound like they’ll ease quite a bit later on?
Today saw Gordon Wills and myself back up at Glenmore Lodge working on some pre winter fitness alongside some ice axe and crampon work.
At the very respectable age of 60+ Gordon has now had four days of back to back winter training. We reckoned he clocked up just about enough milage to credit a Grand Course! Gordon’s now on his way back down south on the sleeper, feeling primed and ready for the up and coming winter.
