I've been out doing som winter climbing with Alsion and Alistair for the last 2 days. We enjoyed and icey Garadh Gully yesterday on ben Nevis. I lead the first 2 pitches and alistair took over for the rest - his first winter leads and Alison's first multi=pitch climb. Today we went to Dorsal Arete in glencoe as a slight thaw settled in. Alistair led coping well with the verglassed cracks and despite being a bit knackered from yesterday well done to Alison for her first lead of a pitch as well.
