Cotswold Aberdeen have kindly sent me some gear to test: a pair of Marmot XT Gloves (look ideal for spring mountaineering, snug, grippy and tough)
Arcteryx Ether Crew LS Thermal Top which seems a good fit and will get plenty of use into the warmer weather.
Watch out this weekend in Scotland. We are looking at a possible sudden thaw taking place and given the existing slab (often sitting on a weak layer) and cornices it WILL be kicking off if the forecast is correct. AND be aware of the effects of all the electronic gadgets we now carry on your compass by reading this little article from Heather at the MCofS.
Finally spare a though for this German pair stranded in Bridge of Balgie by our late winter!
