It is usually a fairly quiet time of year for courses - with the change over in seasons marking a change over in courses - but for some reason it has turned into one of the busiest periods I've had for while, with climbing courses in the Wye valley for the past 11 days with the next 5 days planned for a traverse of the Cuillin on Skye, then its back to Snowdonia for a mountaineering course at the weekend - thankfully the weather is looking favourable ! ( last year's traverse was cancelled with 100 mph winds and horizontal rain ). Thanks to everyone on the last few courses for putting up with the unsettled weather and the unseasonal midges this weekend - I hope they aren't a sign that the dreaded Cuillin Midges are still out !
