A Mixed week

Steve and Mark joined me for the last week in search of winter climbing... the weather of course has been having other ideas this winter (?).
We managed to climb a lean North Gully in strong winds on monday, tuesday was damp mountaineering on the East Ridge of Beinn a' Chaorainn and wednesday was in the same vein on Golden Oldy. Thursday was damp and grim so we did some rope work training and talked gear based at Three Wise Monkeys. Finally today poor Steve had niggles in both and ankle and a hand so had to forego a damp walk round to the Brenva Face where Mark and I managed 30m of ice before retreating from some ice screw threads... Mark then built his own abseil station for us to use abseiling down the steep apron.
