The start of winter 2020

27th October 2019

It's been a while since we've done any blogging, which is mainly becuase we spend our summers working on tv and film productions (https://www.mountainandwatersafety.co.uk/). This year has been very busy with film work and we've been working across the UK and the world on different productions like Bond, Wonder Women, Fast & Furious to name but a few.

Winter has arrived in the mountains and it's great getting ready for it all to kick off.

Here are some photos of recent hill walking and the summit of Cairn Gorm (27.10.19), along with a selection of random filming related shots.

Our winter courses are beginning to fill and we're keeping everything crossed for lots of snow.

Excellent couple days of private guiding (saved our trip) Chris and I spent to days with Rory from Cairngorm Adventure Guides. Rory was fantastic. He manage to maximize the amount we learned, tailored his instruction to our levels of expertise, and adapted the whole trip on the fly to the weather conditions. Without the help the trip would have been a total write-off. We'd come up to Aviemore the previous year and been blown off the mountain by 80 MPH winds. This year, we had 100 mph winds (AGAIN!) with the added obstacle warm weather melting almost all the climbable gullies. Fortunately... we had a guide! Rory completely saved the trip. One the first day - with winds making the mountains unclimbable - we went to sheltered crag nearby and got in a full day of climbing and instruction. The second day we only had the warm weather to contend with, but Rory plan a great day - up the one gully that was still climbable, down into another valley and then a multi-pitch climb back up to Cairngorm Mt. So in essence - (1) Rory was great, and (2) you can't rely on Scottish weather, so hiring a local guide company like Cairngorm Adventure Guides is a very good idea. Without the local expertise our trip would have been a total waste; instead we had a great weekend a learned a huge amount about efficiently and safe climbing.
