Busy week

Lots going on at The Ice Factor.

This week Al started the off in the Cairngorms before coming back to the west. See:

Guy and Lorenzo returned from a good trip to Rjukan and Guy was straight out for an ascent of Tower Ridge with Will:

Nick and team were mountaineering in Glencoe, on the Nid on Aonach Mor and finally on the fine East Ridge of Beinn a Chaorainn on Thursday.

Jamie B and party were walking on Buachaille Etive Beag and looking at some winter skills on Aonach Mor. Today he has gone up to Coire nan Lochain.

A big thaw hit on thursday and looks like it will last over the weekend - snow is slowly but steadily retreating from the Mamores above Kinlochleven. Fingers crossed for a return to cold weather before we lose too much.

We have found an old Mountain Tech pick in the shop (pic attached). I know these are a bit of a rarity now. Anyone who wants it call 01855 831 103 for the Ice Factor shop.
