Well I’ve been slacking a bit with updates over the past 6 months so it’s time to get back on it. I’ve got a few adventures planned this year: Nepal for the Winter season then Thailand for Christmas. I’ve also entered 10 In the Glen, a 10 hour trail run on a 10km course up here in Fort William.

Updates to follow.

Not really got a solid internet connection at the moment so no real updates. Had an awesome day yesterday on the Etive, Allt a Chaorainn and Allt a Mheuran… with slides and falls a’plenty followed by some food and beer at the Clachaig. This summer’s going to be a good one.

I haven’t been upto all that much in the past few weeks. Last Friday I managed to get down to Blencathra for a quick scramble up Sharp Edge and as you can see from the photo the weather initially wasn’t too great…. half an hour later though the sky was crystal clear and the sun was out. I spent the Saturday and Sunday with Ross Wallace from Lakes First Aid – brushing up on my outdoor first aid skills and learning a lot in the process (aswel as eating some good cakes Ross had baked!)
