I have been a little slack on the blogging recently, mainly because for some reason it would not let me up load photos but also because it has been Christmas!

Anyway it is now sorted it would seem so I thought I would catch up. Since I last posted I have been out enjoying winter. I have managed to get out a climb a few routes, spent a weekend testing kit and running some winter skills training with Berghaus, spent sometime staff training at Glenmore Lodge, had 3 days winter skills with St Pauls School from London and had a days ski touring out by the Lecht.

After a week spent with family enjoying Christmas and enjoying some time with Dougal it is time to get back to work at the start of January with what looks like it is going to be a busy winter.
