After what feels like a decade away, I have nipped back to Scotland for a few days. Around catching up with friends, I squeezed in a couple of days work on the 'home turf'. First off, yesterday, I was out with Alan, originally we chatted about some esoterica on Ben Nevis, but most of the routes we have left to do are pretty short, will take a lot of walking to get too and will be pretty slimey. Given that there had been substantial rain recently, we opted for a wander up Tower Ridge, which never disappoints. Alan is celebrating his 70th birthday and 50th wedding anniversary so we quit while we were ahead and took the easy option down, he didnt want to be limping around the dancefloor.
Glad to be back in Lochaber

Today, a somewhat unsavoury day of weather with Helen, Scrambling on Ben Nevis was aborted by strong winds and rain so we settled for some big boot climbing in Glen Nevis. Which provided us with some great sport.
