North West Highlands

Team summit shot
For the last week I have been based in Stratchcarron working for Martin Moran.  I was working on and Introduction to Winter Climbing course with Dawn, Cassie and Charlie.  All with varied experiences we covered lots of routes, venues and skills.  We visited Skye, Glen Shiel, Fuar Tholl, training crags and the dry tooling crag for a broad experience of what winter climbing is all about.  The snow conditions were pretty limited but we got plenty done with the Forcan Ridge being a particular highlight..quite a ridge!

Its great to be back in the North West.  Looking forward to my next two week stint up here..

I didn't think I could top the "wow" feeling of climbing the snow gully in Fuar Tholl and then...the Forcan Ridge happened!! What an amazing week!!! Thanks Guy for a very knowledgeable and safe instruction during the course. Cassi
