Logging and Blogging

Four weeks down here already - time really flies! It has been a bit cool and unsettled, linked to the huge high pressure system that has been giving the UK some proper winter weather. Colin came just before Christmas and we managed 50 or so routes whilst he was here - which is 50 or so more then we would have done back home!
Colin also built a substantial wood-pile that should see us through the cold days ahead - not that there are going to be too many of those I trust! Mind you the current record low was -3.5C so that is pretty cool.
We have continued to explore the area - and very nice it is too, there are some right posh houses hereabouts - most of them are empty though!
I have handed Western Grit over to Alan and he he making all the right noises - I have a few more bits and bobs to tidy up but really it time to get stuck into the Cote d'Azure guidebook.

Inevitability as most as soon as Colin departed the weather really perked up, cloudless blue days and crisp cool nights. So a bit of cragging was in order and we spent a hot(!) few hours on the Pilier de Soliel down at Dramont. There are a few other decent looking routes down there too - must get back asap.
