Great conditions but very very busy!
It was cold clear and calm this morning and the superb climbing conditions together with the AMI AGM meant that almost every route was being climbed!
Rather than mentioning the routes being climbed just click on the pictures including the one of Fiacail Buttress with what looks like climbers starting up the Hurting - could it be Andy Turner on the second ascent. See Andy's blog here!!
Fi, Jonathan P and myself were out with Nottingham Uni's MPS society teaching winter skills, winter mountaineering and winter climbing in almost perfect conditions - except for navigation! Some more photos on Fi's blog here. The only downside was that digging snow anchors on the concrete like neve was really hard work though once dug they were pretty bombproof!
More of the same tomorrow hopefully.
We've still got some places on next weekends Winter Skills course and the following weeks Winter Mountaineering course.
Private guiding and instruction can also still be arranged throughout February and March.
