Ooo... bit of a hangover this morning after Scrubbing last night! As usual I seem to have been ignoring the old weblog but I've done a couple of interesting things over the last week that I should probably write about.
I went to Glencoe last weekend with the EUMC, the weather was pretty horrible so I didn't feel too guilty about going to The Ice Factor on Saturday! This is the world's largest indoor ice climbing facility, you pay £8.50 and get two hours of climbing on the ice. That doesn't sound like very long, but I was utterly knackered by the time I finished scrabbling my way up overhanging snow-ice! I should have some photos up when I finish the film in my SLR.
To extend the climbing wall theme... I went to the new National Rock Climbing Centre of Scotland at Ratho, just outside Edinburgh, on Wednesday. Basically, they've taken a large quarry and put a roof over half of it. The place is absolutely huge - one of the walls is 30m high and its the first time I've ever felt exposure on a climbing wall! Having said that, the place is also freezing cold and I would definitely recommend taking a down jacket or something for when you're belaying.
It seems that this weekend I might actually get the chance to climb outside as I'm off to the Northern Corries tonight.
