I met Nasser in Saturday and we decided to go to the Ice Factor and then Onich Gorge in the Afternoon. I booked the ice and we got in first and this allowed us to gain access to the best space for coaching movement skills on snow and ice. After a drive up Glen Coe to check conditions we went to the gorge and Nasser practised abseiling and made a complete on sight no falls ascent of the M1 slab.
Café Altitude will re-open this weekend under the very capable hands of Hayley & Helen. The smells and samples that have been drifting upstairs this week have been great and we wish them luck.
Each purchase made at our Ambleside shops: Adventure Peaks, Marmot Store, Walkers Shop and Little Walkers will receive a free tea or coffee this weekend (5-6th December) in Café Altitude which is above Adventure Peaks, 101 Lake Road.
7th July: The alarm in the guides tent went off at 5:30am. As the door opened that morning the view confirmed our fears for the day. Overnight, winds had increased, clouds had rolled in and it was snowing lightly. After watching the weather trend worse for the next five hours, the team decided to call off the attempt and and retreat. The trip back to base camp was disappointing for all, but went smoothly. Now everyone is back in Anchorage and preparing to head home.
