Yesterday I was running the first day of a Climbing Wall Award Training course based at The Ice Factor. It was raining heavily in Lochaber and the climbing centre was busy providing a good environment to look at what working and climbing in a noisy wall with many users is all about.
At the same time with a dusting of snow forecast on the highest tops tomorrow my thoughts are turning to winter. I've got almost 3 full weeks of courses booked already and some people are predicting another good cold one. Last year will take some beating- here is my video of 97 days of axes and crampons last year (there was a 98th day but i'd already made the video by then!). Hope it whets some appetites.
