Crampons stashed away

Everyone at the Ice factor is sad to see the winter coming to an end. Most of us have now stored crampons away until next winter or for some summer alpine action. All the instructors have been busy with at work or out on the hill. Alan has been to Greenland for a spot of skiing and several days guiding in Glencoe as well. see for more info. Jamie B has also been pretty active guiding as well as spending 3 days with Lochaber college teaching lead climbing at Glen Nevis and nearby venues. Guy spent 2 days walking with Lochaber college students east of the Grey Corries, looking at navigation, leadership and camp craft. He has also spent some days down at Glen Nevis with Will getting him prepared for his SPA, but unfortunately Guy is injured so he has been pretty inactive. Will is currently on his SPA assessment this weekend (good luck Will) and Al is assessing. Will has been out climbing every spare minute hes had to get himself prepared. Tom has been bouldering at Glen Nevis quite a lot and is off on his SML Training next week. Lorenzo has also been active on his days off as well as making the most of the staff training days out. Jamie H has also been out enjoying the hills as well.
