PYB Scottish Winter kick off

On February 7, 2013 by Tim Neill

So, the official start of PYB courses has swung into action up north. A busy mix of Mountaineering, Hillwalking, Climbing and of course the Winter MLs and MIC courses. I’ve been doing a nice mix of stuff and always enjoying old favourites and new climbs (to me) depending on the variables that get thrown at you each day. Mostly they’ve been thrown at us on some pretty hefty winds….so lots of red faces and stories of crawling along the tops.

It’s been cool to go climbing with some of the future MICs coming through, and see them excited about working in the winter.

Anyway, with the predominant weather being cold and snowy ( but with old school rapid freeze/thaw) things look really good in the long term….might be an ice climbing feb instead of scrabbling around on mixed. Lets see.
