Aiguilles Marbree with Rick

A nice outing with Rick. Conditions are pretty good but there was not much of a freeze last night so the snow surface was a little bit soft. It was fine for the early birds!

Introductory rock climbing course

A nice day here with good dry rock to climb upon.  Martin and his grandson J drove up from Wishaw and we went through lots of rock climbing skills and got some nice climbs done in the process. So a great day and if you are looking for introductory climbing course or perhaps transferring your skills from indoors bolt climbing to trad please give us a call..
