A month in pictures, Spring in Scotland

After some really wet days I felt like this little fella
Spring so far has been great in terms of work and great on my time off.  Maybe not as much personal climbing as I have hoped but I have spent some great time with friends and family as well as watching the rain beat off the windows.

Day 2 was not so perfect!!
Now with a little time off, I'm heading south to find some nice weather and some dry rock.  Feeling blessed to be supported by Millet who have kept me warm and dry with their excellent clothing, kept my clients safe with their excellent ropes, kept my feet in great condition thanks to the super comfy and durable footwear and gave me the perfect rucksacks to transport it all around.  Thank you also to all the great clients I have worked with, you have all done great, especially in the horrible weather we have had on some days.
