Fiddler for Fun There are still places on the Mountain Leader Training course 9th to 14th October and Adele is also leading a trip to Aconcagua for Jagged Globe leaving on the 30th November. Please contact Adele if your interested.
Diana wind blown and wet on the Fiddler Not deterred by the weather Adele and Diana made a dash for the Fiddler. It was probably more of a slow plod rather than a sprint as the water poured into their boots down their necks. Ham butties and cake at the top renewed spirits before they ran down to clearing skies and midges. It was then time for Adele to drive back which was a little too exciting. With the car going sideways Adele curtailed her journey home but did manage to sneak a couple of hours at Kendal Climbing wall yesterday. This evening Adele is driving South to do an After dinner Speech for Shell.

Walking and exploringToday with a flight to catch the girls only had time for a short walk around the coast line. Adele scurried around exploring the Reiff Cliffs and didnt have much luck in persuading Diana to be a belay bunny. After soloing a short route Adele has decided that she will be back! Tommorow Adele and Diana will be going for a walk on the ridge of Ben Mor Coigach if the storm that forecasted does not materialise.

Classic Ross-shire ScramblesLast night Adele gave a talk at Fettes College in Edinburgh and then took the opportunity to drive North of Ullapool to Polbain to meet Diana and Rosemary for scrambling antics. Scrambling on Stac Pollaidh
The weather held to allow fasntastic views over the Minch and the surrounding hills. There is something very majestic about the North West of Scotland and the intrepid trio reminised of their trip to Nepal two years ago. Next year Diana hopes to celebrate her 70th Birthday on another 6000m peak

Climbing and Photography Today
Hey Nick how about my Photography! Nick at the top of CapricornLaving early was the key to success today, the winds were lower and with the tide fully out Adele and Nick abseiled down into Square Bay to climb Rosary. Making this into a multi pitch route saved Nick from a wash in salty water. After Rosary they managed to take in Capricorn on Initiation slabs before the tide was back in. A trip down to Port-y Ffynnon in the afternoon was not so successful as the rain as forecasted came in and climbing was abandoned. Tommorow's forecast does not look too promising but another early start may allow Adele and Nick to sneak in one more route.
