The last couple of days have given me the chance to relax and get back on the rock for the first time since November. On Monday I had a great morning at the Limekilns soloing and leading with Neil on route from VS to E3 in the sunshine. Today I walked to Rosyth quarry and warmed up by soloing all the routes fromVD to HVS, which was a great way to get back into the swing of things. I then had a bit of a training session by doing laps on Philistine before coming home for something to eat. A great couple of days to get the head back.
The conditions on the Ben have been pretty good over the last few days. Most of the ice that's around is good but going fast. A little snow has fallen, but more is needed if it is to stay around for a while yet. Routes such as Zero, Orion Direct, Indicator, Smiths and Two Step to mention a few have been climbed.
