Re: Dog Jackets.

Hi, I'd recommended this dog jacket if your dog has a thick coat and doesn't need extra insulation: http://www.zooplus.co.uk/shop/dogs/dog_clothing/waterproof/274366 Lightweight, waterproof and covers most of the bits that get muddy! Also stays in place well with plenty of room for active pooches :)

Re: Sun, sweat, pain and Buidhe Bheinn

Stunning photos BP and what a detailed report! I'm rubbish at identifying hills from other hills. Well done! :clap:

Re: No Wrath, just joy in the Cape

Lovely :D Looks like I just missed the good weather when I was up that way last week. Didn't quite make it to Durness but definitely on the list for another time.

Re: Two new ticks at last! And not the blood sucking kind :)

Nice one, loved the title, especially after all the horror stories re the other 'ticks' :lol: :lol: Some great photo's, good luck with the next few ticks :wink: Thanks Fife Flyer. Tempting fate, but no other 'ticks' for me or, surprisingly, Corrie dog this year. We must be too sweet smelling :wink:...

Re: Two new ticks at last! And not the blood sucking kind :)

Good stuff, mm. There's nowhere quite like the far north. I stayed at the Altnaharra b and b to do both these hills, a great little place with real character. Coincidentally, it was Mandy at that b and b who made me wary of the wrong type of ticks. I bet you found your trip up there very worthwhile...

Two new ticks at last! And not the blood sucking kind :)

After several years in the PhD wilderness, it was time, at last, for normal mountain service to be resumed. Unfortunately, sitting in front of a computer all day does not a fit person make. So, after a jaunt in the Ochils that confirmed the old legs were not up to much, a sensible, albeit last minut...

Re: Mera Peak Nepal April 2014

Hi Bex I've done a fair bit of high altitude trekking/climbing, including 6000m peaks, and have never worn plastic boots. Not a fan of them though they are certainly warmer and essential if you go much higher. I did progress to using yeti gaiters at one point which provide extra insulation though th...

Re: Mera Peak Nepal April 2014

Not sure what it says on JG kit list but I didn't take a huge amount of kit aside from ice axe, crampons, helmet, harness, a decent down sleeping bag, thermarest and my trusty Sportiva Nepal Extremes. Oh and toasty gloves! We climbed in late December/early January so temperature at high camp was a t...

Re: Mera Peak Nepal April 2014

Hi Steve, I climbed Mera Peak in 2000 (on the summit to see the sunrise on the new millennium :D). Fantastic trip. Love Nepal and have been back several times since. I did the Mera Peak trip with KE Adventure Travel who I'd highly recommend although Jagged Globe are good too - did a climbing trip to...
