Soggy Bottom

After having a nice walk in Glen Coe yesterday where the sun was out for most of the day. We had were met with rain all day today, completely soaked through before we even got to the Achintee. Fortunately it was a short day.


If You Got The Balls....CHECK THEM!

This is the message the Hartson Foundation are trying to spread. John Hartson was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer after ignoring a lump for 4 years, John admits himself that if he was aware of how easy it was to get checked and that Testicular Cancer is over 90% curable if caught early enough he probably would not have had to go through the brain operations, lung operations and over 60 sessions of chemotherapy.
To raise awareness for this Jon and 60 of his friends and supporters were walking up Ben Nevis today. We had good weather and everyone made it to the top. Afterwards it they hit Fort William for a pub crawl, literally crawling between pubs!

Cycling the Three Peaks

Today I was up the Ben with four chaps who were cycling between the three peaks. Today was their last day and it was safe to say they were feeling the strain! Hoever they got up and down in good time and raised lots of money for charity. Well Done Lads!

Breaking Things

As usual a few of us headed to the Garry this Thursday. The weather was pretty miserable but luckily that doesn't matter too much when paddling.
Johann had a little accident that he shrugged off at the time but a couple of days later the doctors confirmed he broke his hand. Hopefully he will return to full strength soon and it doesn't affect his climbing too much.
