A view from Gairloch towards the Torridon Mountains (taken yesterday 27/12/11)

I was on the hill today working for Alpine Guides with Cardiff University Mountaineering Club. All credit to these keen young climbers, it was a thoroughly pant wetting, windy, cold miserable day. With all that said we still managed to cover a lot of basic winter skills and even had time and energy for an afternoons snow anchor’s session.

Nice one guys, if you can suffer those conditions today and still be smiling you’ll all do just fine in the game that is Scottish Winter Climbing!

Hopefully not long before it's back to this?

I’m out tomorrow doing some climbing work, keeping my fingers crossed that we can wade into get a route done. It does look weather and condition wise like it’s getting better over the next couple of days.
