Blue skies, sunshine and perfect neve

The recent settled weather has transformed the mountains into a wonderful playground for outdoor sports - Rado and Dimitri's course finished with a first winter  lead for them, smiles and handshakes all round, and they were rewarded with a spectacular view across the Cairngorm plateau looking very 'arctic' - I've got a feeling they'll be back !
Even with tired legs,  I wasn't going to miss out on the conditions and managed to squeeze in a climb in Coire an Sneachda, a trip to Hell's Lum and an afternoon's Skiing on the plateau on my day off - including an 8 hour drive home ! It didn't stop there either, Tuesday's springlike weather led to a bike ride in the Brecon Beacons and some rock climbing on the way home in the evening sunshine - a fantastic few days, what a difference a bit of sun makes !
