We were lucky with the weather yesterday and my friend Ewan has been climbing for 60 years. Ewan was brought up in Fort William and started climbing when he was ten years of age- lets hope we can all continue to move so well, maintain our enthusiasm and enjoy climbing.
|Not the best of weather but it is Scotland.|
|This season many of our climbs are rather thin and a bit bare of snow, but higher in the gullies conditions are fine.|
|Classic Ewan - a few tangles with his ice axe leashes but a fine topping out photo!|

Well we started out with a some good cover and good climbing here in Scotland but over the past weeks the weather has been very changeable, some times we have snow, more often so far this season we have not! Here below are some images from Torridon...
|Late December 2019 it was like this.|

A continuing thaw at most levels today with high winds so Karl requested some outdoor rock climbing so that he coud try traditional climbing, placing his own gear as he climbed. I suggested we drive to Burghead and despite the high wind and rainy forecast it stayed dry for most of the day....we have been very lucky with the weather, and after much chat and instruction climbed three routes with Karl getting the opportunity to lead them all... a very good day.
