Buachaille Etive Mor – Iconic mountain in Glencoe

 

 

You may have been wondering why there haven’t been any Toubkal Winter Conditions Reports recently! This is because I, James, have headed up to Scotland and have been working towards my Mountaineering Instructor Certificate – a qualification that will allow me to teach and guide on more technical ice and mixed routes. So the conditions reports will resume towards the middle of March when I’m back!

 


In the meantime, here is what I’ve been up to over the last week in Scotland: routes such as Dinnertime Buttress I/II, Curved Ridge II/III, Golden Oldy II , Faulty Towers III, Dorsal Arete II have been hard earned with the wild conditions that are predominant in the western highlands. Slightly different to Morocco!

    Thanks James for a fantastic couple of days! Andrew and I both really appreciated your competence, confidence and the care you showed throughout two top quality mountain days. we did so much more than we would have tackled on our own.
