This was taken just over a month ago. I had a fantastic week in Scotland working on my winter climbing. All the practice will come in handy for Chamonix in July. The photo makes this look significantly harder than it was!

Expertly guided by Steve at @westcoast_mountainguides and great to have @michael_hellyer on the other end of the rope. Massive thanks to both of them for a great week.

A few weekends I took some of the guys from BS8 up to Snowdonia. Amazing blue skies and still a decent bit of neve to climb. Took the guys through ice axe arrests and some winter skills and then we climbed A Gully on Y Garn. Im finally in one of these photos. #snowdonia #climbing #BS8ClimbingClub

After arriving in Snowdonia early Saturday morning (1am), quick kip and then starting our day late we ended up topping out Cneifion Arete in the pitch black. During the day visibility was awful but as night rolled in we were greated by a clear sky. 
I was delighted that it was cold enough for our rope to freeze!! ❄️❄️ But sadly not cold enough for a proper winter climb . Crampons were on but mainly for dry tooling, didn't touch our axes.

Seniors direct -> seniors gully -> Cneifion arete.

TT next to Adam and Eve on the top of Tryfan. He managed to choose the only spot on the summit with no view. We climbed up the west face then scrambled up the North Ridge to the summit. #whereistheview #tryfan #snowdonia #winterclimbing #heonlycametoclimb
Helvellyn to Angle Tarn. An amazing weekend away.

Last weekend camping at angle tarn. It was -15 Celsius but there was no wind so managed to get a good kip. #wildcamping #angletarn #lakedistrict
I was distracted by some big rocks tumbling down onto the glacier, making me think we'd both probably be safer in the crevasse. #youresaferight? #glacier #iceclimbing #bestbelayer #BS8Climbing
Not seen goats before in Snowdonia. I didn't have much choice of angle for this snap #goatarse #turntheothercheek #bighorn #snowdonia #tryfan
Took a break from the alps and headed into Italy for a bit of sport climbing. #aostevalley #slabisgross #drjimmy #drjimmyadjacent #climbing #lasportiva
Always good to have a reliable climbing partner who will help you enjoy even the toughest routes... unfortunately, I have this bell end. #alpinism #climbing #mixedclimbingislife #chamonix #grandmontets #cosmiquesridge
Wet days in the highlands stopped us doing any climbing. But still had some good fun on the hills with @essexrambler #munros #glencoe #riversontherocks #saturated #highlands
