Here's a few things that popped up last week on the web that I thought were interesting. Will Gadd - Candian Winter maestro has blogged about some great time saving tricks for multi-pitch ice climbs, many of which could be of equal use for alpine routes.
In case you've been on holiday or had a power cut, big news of the week, month erm...year is that Dave Macleod has completed his winter project on Ben Nevis - E8 with axes no less
Finally Porters Progress, a charity that does great work providing support for porters in the Himalaya have a fund raising film night on the 16th of March at the RGS. So anyone in London this should be an entertaining night
