/ NEWS: An American Discovers Scottish Winter Delights

Sounds delightful. I think it says much about MacDonald's skills as a journo to have managed to sound so enthused about it. Hopefully he has got up some better stuff as the week has progressed.
It is good that American climbers are coming over for the delights of Scottish winter climbing. They have been doing it for a while and long may they keep doing it. Jim Donini came over to Scotland in 1973 and we have a great time, both on and off the hills.
Dougald was enjoying pristine ice on Psychedelic (Monday), according to james edward's blog.
