It is quite cold out in the alps at the moment and the weather has been quite mixed with snow lying down to 2000m and staying on the ridges. It is clearing better from steep southern facing routes. I'm staying in Austria for the next few days but we may move if the temperatures don't go up. It could be an interesting time to do a big mixed face... but that's not on the agenda for this trip!

Skye Ridge, Munros, Rock and Sport Climbing and teaching leading

I have had the computers packed up in dust proof covers this past couple of weeks as i have been sanding and varnishing the floors in between work. A bit of a chore but worth doing in the end (I'm told).
Thus blog catch up time...
I have been guiding rock and sport climbing and teaching leading. I have been in the Cullin a lot recently and have just got back from doing a Munros course in very mixed weather.
I'm off to the Alps for a few weeks at the weekend and then North Wales before going back to Skye. I'll try and keep up the blog up to date but it will be intermittent.
It's tipping it down again outside so it's quite nice to be varnishing inside!
