LochaberThis year Joe and I headed off to Lochaber in Scotland for our annual pilgrimage to find some winter snow. We based ourselves in Glen Nevis and, when the weather allowed us, climbed the surrounding mountains of the Ben Nevis range and the Mamores. I had been to the Lochaber area once before in the summer of 2001 to compete in an international orienteering compete ion, but climbed absolutely no mountains (trust me when your running for at least an hour every day through rough Scottish forests you don't want to climb any mountains), so I was thoroughly looking forward to the trip. Despite some pretty grim weather grounding us for a few days we had some great winter mountaineering days and now eagerly await the next time I'm able to return. It's always a pleasure to mountaineer in Scotland, you just don't get that kind of scale and wilderness anywhere else in Britain. For now though I'll have to satisfy myself with creating a few Mountain and Route pages for SP.
