/ Anyone been at Stob Coirre/Ampitheatre in the last 36 hours?
He, his brother and a friend were planning on climbing up yesterday afternoon and bivying near Stob Coirre to do the ridge walk on the Ampitheatre (hope this makes sense - I am not a climber!).
Normally I would have heard from him by now - so wondering - has anyone seen the party? Should I just rack it up to poor mobile signal? At what time today should I start to worry?
As I said, not a climber so please go gently on me, just a worried wife who wants to make sure she is doing the right thing!
Its very common to go without signal for a few days but if he's bivvying in the cold maybe his phone has died alot quicker or maybe he's keeping it turned off for emerganices.
When he goes away when does he usually report back to you within a certain amount of time?
Oh the joys of being a climbers wife.
Very glad to hear that, was feeling for you :)
