Sandy Paterson Mountaineering

This is a blog of my personal and work climbing along with all the other things I do in the outdoors. Please feel free to have a look at my main website.

Over winter I will try and blog at the end of each week, however I will aim to tweet each day so feel free to follow me @SandyPMIC

A fairly bare Sneachda compared to before Christmas

I have spent the last 5 days with Paul. The original plan was to go winter climbing as Paul was keen to try some harder climbs so he could improve his alpine climbing. However the conditions did not allow this. We did though have a good 5 days looking at all sorts of climbing skills, including some steep ice techniques courtesy of a trip to the ice factor!
Fingers crossed for a return to colder weather and some snow as it is not looking that wintry in the Cairngorms at present.
