I was out with Ricci, who has his sight set on Mount Everest later this year. He was keen to get some mileage in the mountains under his belt, so we went up Golden Oldie, and then from the summit of Aonach Mor, made our way over to the summit of Aonach Beag before returning back to the gondola station. Needless to say that Golden Oldie was in great condition.
Not far behind, Steve was out with Chris and Shane. Again, they led the majority of the route, looking at various ways to move safely with the rope attached.
Caspar, Petko and Vladislav, who are preparing for Denali, had a day climbing Ruth and Ruth’s Rib, looking at a variety of belays.
It was a stunning day to be out and about in the Scottish Highlands, with plenty of sunshine and cool temperatures. It was the sort of day that we all wish for everyday throughout winter!
