Dare I say living the Dream?!

So, strong westerlies, rain, freezing levels frequently above summits, the end of 2011 was pretty crap. But in comes the new year and despite things not being perfect, the gods have actually allowed some great climbing.  
I'm a bit behind with the blog so here are some of my photos from the past two weeks...

So there you have it, the weekly life of a winter freelancer! Please don't hire us to actually work, we're having far too much fun!
