Ropework and big boots

Today i was out with Calum and Glenda. we'd hoped to go and look at mountaineering ropework on Tower Ridge but the forecast didn't make us think it would be the best learning environment today so we went with Plan B. Glenda was introduced to seconding and Calum's good climbing knowledge was refreshed and 'converted' for mountaineering. We were in Glen Nevis and climbed Styx Buttress Right Wall, The Gutter and the first pitch of 3 Pines (all quite sporting in big boots and on damp mica schist). We also put in 3 abseils and a wee journey using some mountaineering ropework. Plan B worked gain. Off to Glenmore Lodge tonight.

Cheers Al, great day that met all our objectives despite the weather. Already looking forward to our winter day... Maybe even get up Tower Ridge this time.

Howdy, I think your site could possibly be having web browser compatibility problems.
Whenever I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.
I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, fantastic site!

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .

net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on
numerous websites for about a year and am concerned about switching
to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.
net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts
into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
