Almost went climbing

Today (on what turned out to be a blue sky low wind day) Olly and I walked into Corie An T'Sneachda to climb a route. On the walk in we looked the options and headed over to Mess of Pottage with a view to climbing Hidden Chimney. I did get as far as having my harness on and one crampon when Olly dived for one of my gloves that had travelled less than a metre for me and messed up his old knee injury. A rest did not improve it so we headed to the moraines for Olly to practice his emergency shelters and then hobbled (him not me) out back to the van.

Olly had bought some new axes and this was to be their maiden voyage and as he is back home tomorrow they will have to wait for next year
