Disappointing week....

It seems the boys didn't choose the best week to be in Scotland, conditions have been far from ideal. Either too much snow, too much sun or lashing rain and warmth have thwarted any attempts on the routes they had in mind. So there has been quite a lot of walking and not a whole lot of climbing. Some great pictures on Lukasz's blog  from the last week - none of which involve climbing! Also have your say on the two Cathedral shots - which do you like best?

I, on the other hand have just come back from a mini break to the Costa Blanca where conditions were perfect! You can imagine how that has gone down in comparison to the wonder of Fort William on a rainy day!

View from my Calpe apartment - better than Fort William high street??

Just in case you haven't seen - check out the Mountain Equipment blog too - some fine Lukasz shots of Andy in lycra - a highly entertaining afternoon of driving along with Lukasz hanging out the boot of his car whilst trying to avoid Andy crashing into the back produced these shots.
 "Andy, we need to do it again, in all these shots you are smiling, it needs to look like it's hard work." Lukasz Warzecha.
"That's not smiling. it's grimacing!" Andy Turner
Needless to say the artist got his way and it definitely looks more like a grimace.

Andy is now working for 3 days with Jonathan and Rupert - think they were heading into Lochan, I'll keep you posted on what they get up too.
