Beautiful spring weather has arrived in Lochaber. It's easy to see why this is the Outdoor Capital of the UK when it is like this. In a break from the winter climbing I was on a TCL assessment course with Anna and Dave. Both had done a lot of preparation and have great experience in delivering adventure experiences to groups of youngsters. They both passed comfortably. It's great to have another couple of really good mountain bike leaders working here.

Up on Ben Nevis there was some fresh snow last night but mostly there is hard frozen snow and great ice climbing. We have calm cold weather forecast for a few days to come, a taste of the great spring ice climbing to come over the next month or two hopefully!
