Today John and I decided to get on the Aonach Eagach as it was on Johns ‘list’ in preparation for his attempt of Island Peak later this year. The route itself was in good condition, not full-on winter as the sun over the last week had stripped Southern aspects although as expected there was plenty of helpful snow and ice along the way. It was nice to get out with John and hear about his Personal Training qualifications and particularly the nutrition side of mountaineering/fell running, take a look at his site HERE for more information. A nice day out and about with great company and my first winter traverse for a couple of years.
