Yesterday I was working with Ken for Maximum Adventure on the Ben Nevis leg of the 3 Peaks Challenge. We were treated to superb weather with glorious views over the Highlands and Islands which was a real treat for our challengers as quite often the Ben is covered in a thick sheet of cloud. The group did very well completing their first of the challenge in 6 hours flat.

Lately my time has been swallowed up with courses and selection/interviews to regain my old position in the Middle East so sorry for the lack of nice climbing posts! If things go to plan this year, I will have to reduce the amount of mountaineering and climbing this year to enable me to finance the future of Vertical Fever and my Continual Professional Development, this may well include an attempt at the British Mountain Guide scheme.
