Climbing and Canyoning work over last two days and a few cups of coffee.

I have been assessing 'NICAS' Climbing awards and doing site specific Canyoning assessments in Glen Ogle over the last two days. Today was a rather calm day after a barrage of hail storms through the night. Fresh snow sits on the tops again and teases us once more into thinking winter is upon us. I say this reservedly as folk have been out climbing and mountaineering high up on Ben Nevis, so it is possible to go winter mountaineering at present. It was a balmy day in Kinlochleven on Monday [ colder inside than out!] and today a chilly morning gave way to a warmish afternoon. Not so warm in the main flow of water though!I am back in the hills tomorrow so watch this space for a conditions report tomorrow evening.
