Winter climbing and ice climbing courses across Scotland, Ben nevis, Glencoe and the Skye Cuillin ridge
Just back from a weeks guiding at the CIC hut. Some more details and pictures can be found here. In general the snow has settled well and most approaches are now safe. Some are tracked but its still fairly hard going if you want to get high into observatory. Most routes are in with the exception of Minus three and minus one which still need a wee bit more ice to get out of the caves.
Mixed routes are good but scary as gear is very hard to find. Most ice routes are good with some variable ice but enough good stuff to be fine.
The weekend looks great weather and then back to some wintery showers and mixed weather, but mainly cold, so the good conditions will only improve over the next week or so.
I still have space next week if anyone wants some guiding at the cic hut. Otherwise I am planning some playtime, probably the Shield direct and maybe a new wee something.
Mega route X, still awaiting an ascent. Bottom 10 metres scary but after that, ok.
