Winter Memories

Here a couple of pictures from a fantastic end to the winter season 2011. So many adventures, climbing, mountaineering, digging all combined make a true Scottish adventure!

After a quick walk into Ben Nevis we avoided the crowds by heading up to RH Indicator which gave some steep enjoyable ice climbing. Here is Nick seconding in style.
