A few weeks ago, in the snow and ice, we had a group stay with us at the cottage. They were climbers, led by Huw Gilbert. He runs climbing courses all over the place, but particularly from his North Wales centre. A couple of weeks after he got back to Wales his wife, Jo, gave birth to a lovely daughter, Martha. We asked him for a pic, and Gillian and I, and our daughters have been oohing and aahing ever since. Lucky Tomos has a new baby sister to look after, and occasionally annoy. And she, him.
Here is Huw's report.
4 days leading Intro to Scottish Winter Climbing course. We used the cottage as a very welcome and comfortable base. Climbed Twisting Gully (111) on Stob Coire nan Lochan, Curved Ridge (11/111) on the Buchaille, Left Twin (111 hard) at Anoch Mor and Arch Gully at Stob Coire nan Beith on Bidean all followed by day's skiing at Nevis Range. Fantastic Snow and Ice conditions.
