Day 1 of a weekend climbing course for Colin, part of his 40th birthday present. We had an ice climbing workshop on the A9 ice this morning and then spent the afternoon and Creag Dhu climbing Qui Qui . The A9 ice is a great little single pitch venue and the ice has fattened up nicely from last week. Qui Qui was a bit quieter today and again alot fatter. The top unclimbed pitch is complete and just needs the bottom 10/15ft to fill out. The top half is fat blue/green ice. Hopefully the cool weather will continue.
