Fly guys ...

Nice day climbing on Curved Ridge with Craig. The hill was quiet apart from some speeding flyers… we beat them down right enough, but we are fast for a couple of older* guys…

Winter had left the westcoast but will return this week…

*ORIGIN Old English ald, of West Germanic origin; related to Dutch our andGerman alt, from an Indo-European root meaning ‘adult’, shared by Latin alere‘nourish’.

Déjà vu ?

10 November 2013

A good day hooking and wading our way up Invernookie on Sunday… (one day we will get the seam in acceptable condition (for us)).

The big dump of snow and rime looks wintery enough, but to consolidate the loose blocks we need a couple of freeze thaw cycles.

All in, a good start to the winter season for us, with a tramp over the Fiacaill Ridge to get back to the ski centre.
