My spies in Kinlochewe have told me that there was a smattering of snow on Liathach yesterday and young Ryan (the spy) was excited. Ryan works for Torridon Activities and is a local lad and member of the Torridon Mountain Rescue Team. Ryan’s Dad is the team leader and a great friend, he is also an accomplished photographer of wild life. Torridon is a wonderful area and the team though very low profile carry out some incredible rescues which rarely hit the press, a great bunch of people and are a great asset to Mountain Rescue. Ryan has just completed his Mountain Leadership Assessment and has started the long road to gain qualifications to work in the outdoors. It is great to see a young local lad so dedicated to a life in the mountains. Local knowledge is the greatest asset in an area like Torridon.
I am off to climb a wee Corbett Corryhabbie Hill near Dufftown with some friends. It was a wild night with high winds and driving rain but now the sun is out and I must get away to pick them up. I will hopefully update when I get back later today.
