Ken and Andy (who was instructing Culann and Conor) both had a super day on Ben Nevis with their respective teams. They both went for the SW Ridge of the Douglas Boulder which Ken said was a great way to round off his three days with Dave and Jay….. ‘With the drop in temperature, the snow on the route was beginning to consolidate well, however, it’s pretty clear that the ice is struggling to form up high, as the freezing level has remained below the summits for sometime. Overall, a great three days for Dave and Jay, who have both enjoyed turning their hands and tools to mixed winter climbing….’
Matt climbed the Zig Zags in Glencoe with Philip and Cathal then continued on to make the classic round of SCNL. Whilst Dave was teaching Killan and Brian some advance skills on school house ridge above Ballachulish.
