Looks like we got our timing spot on with our climb on Monday, as a fairly heavy thaw has set in. However continuing stormy weather should keep the snow pack topped up and provide a great base for the rest of the season. While the arms have recovered now from our trip, I'm not sure my back has, infact its beginning to feel like I might have cracked a rib close to my back during the Beinn Eighe avalanche. Hopefully plenty of Christmas cake should cement things back in place. The other thing that bust recently was my axe.3/4s of the way up the wall pitch on the Duel I suddenly realised my axe was feeling a bit wobbly. Infact the whole handle had sheared off.
