A blue sky day in Glencoe

Today I was out in Glencoe with Ronan, who after a two day winter skills course in Scotland last year was back for more! Keen to get onto some climbing ground we decided to head up into Stob Coire nan Lochan and see how things were looking. Unfortunately my navigation skills seemed to let me down, as we […]

Thankfully the windy weather of the last few weeks seemed to have run out of puff…..(for now!), and we enjoyed four rather settled days on the hill. Although the stormy weather had past, it had left behind quite a lot […]

Over the sea to Skye!

The last few months have been reasonably busy for me. With a mixture of rope access and climbing work, its been a bit of a juggling act being to be able to fit in some personal days out. Thankfully I’ve managed to squeeze bits and pieces of my own climbing in with a few days […]

Back to reality

I’ve been back home from Scotland for just over a month now and already it feels like a lifetime ago. With the days getting longer and temperatures nudging their way upwards you’d be forgiven for thinking that summers just around the corner.

West was best!

Its been a bit of a busy week for me this week. I feel like I’ve been all over the place with the weather being just as varied as the locations. Monday started with a less than prefect forecast, high winds and lots of snow meant that the ski road up to the Cairngorms was […]

House bound!

Since arriving in Scotland two weeks ago things have been fairly busy, with lots of personal climbing and a little bit of work thrown in for good measure.Conditions out on the crags have been hard going at times with big accumulations of snow meaning lots of digging to find gear, or long run outs.
