Last Week

It been a good week. When to the Clachaig Winter Safety Lecture on Tuesday. Great talk by Mike. The down to Ice Factor on Thursday for a bit of training with Rachel. Trying to get fit for a sport climbing trip in April. Was feeling it in the morning after. On Friday headed out with Uni on one of are practical days. We where going to be working on the winter mountaineering skills. That the group had gone over the week before on Aonch Mor. We headed down to Glen Coe to go up Bauchaille. As Scot wonted us to get on the snow fast.
