|On belay 2 of Hidden Chimney|
|Abseiling into Cha-no to climb Dukes Rib|
|Taking the direct line on Twin Ribs|
|End to a great week|
Last week was the start of my season at Glenmore Lodge and I started off working alongside Bill Strachan on a Winter Climbing week. I teamed up with Nigel and Andy who were getting their first taste if climbing let alone winter climbing! The week started with some poor weather so we spent Monday looking at snow anchors and then visited the Ice Factor on Tuesday. Wednesday was cold and windy and we made it to a very buried Hidden Chimney for some vertical swimming. Thursday had us at Cha-no to climb Dukes Rib where the conditions were much better. Finally on Friday we climbed a direct version of Twin Ribs. A great week with improving conditions and great company and by the sounds of things two new coverts to winter climbing!
