12/2/10 Great Ice Climbing in Scottish Highlands

The winter climbing season is in full swing in the Scottish Highlands and there are currently some great conditions. Big dumps of snow in January followed by constantly sub-zero temperatures on the hills have given superb conditions for ice and mixed climbing as well as ski touring and winter hill walking. The big freeze looks set to continue and with so much snow and ice around we could be shaping up nicely for some superb late season winter climbing.
