Winter Skills 2007

Blank Space...must fill... cant do the weekend justice, it was amazing!! Proximity to the pub - spot on! Oh, and the hiking/climbing also totally worth it. No crazy accidents I was sort of expecting (or is it just that personally I'm that clumsy?), no piercing of legs with crampons, no falling from great heights or ice axe vengance against Damo and his EARLY wake up calls. \\

where is everyone? I write some rubbish and no one removes it... geez!! Here I go again.


MY Winter Skills:
I have now realised that maps are incredibly useful items... Who knew the Cairngorms were in the West of Scotland? Hence why it took us quite so long to get there maybe?
Tipsy Laird - top name! and good accomodation - en suite!! AND NEXT TO THE PUB....
Friday - lots of skills learnt!!

  • big boots = big pain
  • how to apply blister plasters effectively
  • the funiculaire is not for mountaineers (damnit!... oh wait, that's what we do....)
  • i'm a secret bagger - i was annoyed we didn't make it to the summit of Cairngorm...


Saturday - I played with ropes today! (no, I'm not a climber thus ropes are challenging (like lots of things...))

  • belay/belay - how DO you say it?
  • bollards and stompers
  • well done to steve - still smelt like a brewery in the morning (proximity to pub means all made it home)


Sunday - Happy Birthday Gerrard

  • I ice-axed my way up a col, some clever people did some funky climbs.... they looked steep to me.. my little challenge was enough for my out of shape body.
  • chris & lou navigated a route to the top of Creag Meagaidh in a white out
  • sang Hokey Cokey on the bus home (why DID i have that on my iPod??)
