Spring Climbing and Scrambling.

Busy as ever the last month at The Ice Factor. Weve had local youth groups and our own kids Club out on the crags of Glen Nevis, staff have been out in the dry weather on classics like Yo-Yo and Travelling man in Glencoe (well done Guy and Ed). Al and Jane were new routing in Ardnamurchan on short gabbro and basalt crags in a beautiful setting, then revisiting old friends in the northwest like the superb Cioch Nose in Applecross - a great contender for most exposed Severe in the UK. Gabbi went on her Summer Mountain Leader Training at Glenmore Lodge, which Al was working on too. Spring is a great time for scrambling and Al, Jamie B and Kenny have all had groups out on the Buachaille. The photos show a great father daughter team who did their first rock climbs at Polldubh on the Saturday and then Curved Ridge on Sunday.
