the two sunny days - 11&12th

The past few days have blessed us with cloud free skies and that funny yellow thing was in plain sight most of the time!  Tuesday Jamie and I headed for the Buachaille for a pleasant bimble up curved ridge.  Bathed in sunshine with no wind, we enjoyed our day out almost as much as we enjoyed our bacon sandwiches on the summit!  Wednesday I headed to Polldubh Crags, Glen Nevis for some rock climbing with Kate and Cameron, again we enjoyed the sunshine and luxury of dry rock, making ascents of Tear HS4b, Damnation VS4c and Three Pines S4b.  Today I was snowboarding at Glencoe, the funny yellow ball had disappeared however snow conditions were excellent and the place was deserted so no lift cues today!
