Ice Climbing


often did not take a camera with me when winter climbing and anyway always found it hard to get good shots. Ice climbing and photography is a hard mix. I rather regret not having any photos of the many fine routes I did north of the border on the big bad Ben and Craig Meaghaidh. Living in North Wales, Ysgolion Duon was my local crag in winter and when in condition provided many fine routes and I was privileged to do some new routes there. I was introduced to the Ice climbing in the la Grave area by Terry Taylor who was maestro on ice and I worked there for several winter seasons.
