Time off...

After a long spell in the East I'm back home and taking a few days off in the next week. Booked up from now to end of March except 15,16,22,23,24,27,28,29 March if anyone wants to go out and do something.
Today I went to a service in celebration of Ed Grindley's life. An amazing event with people talking about the wonderful things he meant to them as a climber, skier, Guide, teacher, colleague and friend. Much laughter and irreverant humour and given the excellent weather and conditions on the hill it was a testament to what he meant to everyone to see such a large number of climbers, Instructors, Guides and skiers there to pay their respects and raise a glass to him.
Then many of us did what he would have done and went up the hill. I went out with Jane and Sandy to Aonach Mor. The wee man is already a better skier than me!
Sorry, only baby pictures today.
Lovely weather, still a lot of powder high up but mid level routes on Ben Nevis are reported as great, Udlaidh, Meagaidh, Glencoe, Cairngorms, Toridon........ man what a winter!

Glad you got to the Ed Grindley celebration, sorry I couldn't be there with you all, but thinking of him as we returned from our snow-holing night.
