Winter work with Mountain Equipment

On February 1, 2013 by Tim Neill

An annual early season fixture for PYB is some events with (PYB clothing sponsors) and Cotswolds shop staff. We take folk out for 2 x 3day courses in hillwalking,mountaineering or winter climbing. To say everyone is well kitted out is an understatement!

The weather has been ideal in a perverse kind of way…..wintry and very windy…so everyone felt well tested and with some good adventures. I took some folk climbing for 3 days on the Ben,Buachaille and at Bridge of Orchy, then after a day off work climbing on the Ben with Keith, I got involved with some windy mountaineering in Glencoe for a couple of days then finished with a wild trip up Ledge Route, Ben Nevis.Fittingly, on one of the evenings I showed some pictures and movie of climbing Fitzroy, Patagonia!!
