Dorsal Arete. Day one of two days of guided climbing.

Always fantastic to be outside in Scotland.

Today Scott was out working for Hebridean Pursuits Ltd with two clients on day one of a two day guided climbing weekend. Scott headed with the guys to Dorsal Arete II,3 xxx as they were keen to experience some ridge climbing. They had a great day finding good conditions but it was quite warm even on the summits. It is due to get colder over night so the softening snow pack should consolidate well.  The team are out again tomorrow, keen to climb some snow and ice. I will have photos for the blog when Scott sends them tomorrow evening. I am told folk were on the classics today in Coire nan Lochan such as Twisting Gully and SC Gully it would seem we have great conditions in Glencoe.
