A short note to say 'thanks' for a very complete and enjoyable day on Saturday. To complete four climbs was tremendous and it has left me with some superb memories.
The climb on troutdale pinnacle was amazing and beyond my expectations, even getting dragged up the second pitch on 'Ardus' has left me wanting a have a go at that one again (OK so maybe I need to practise a little more first).
Hopefully next year I'll be able to do a little more climbing in the lakes with you, I'm already looking forward to it.
Good luck with your future adventures & I hope everything goes well with the birth of your first child.

Back from Scotland and looking out from my desk at work over the very green hills of Sheffield. This is just to say thank you very much again for a great weekend. Particularly the Sunday sticks in my mind. Walking up the goat path and then into a complete whiteout was quite an experience!
Hope to see you again some time and good luck with all trips you have planned.
Take care, Christiane (Winter Skills 2005)
Just a quick note to say a big thanks you for an excellent trip with superb leadership. I couldn't have done it without you ... and it wouldn't have been as enjoyable either.
See you again - John (Greenland 2003)

Just a short note to wish you and Ali a very happy Christmas, wherever you are (Thailand?). Not a day has passed since we got home when we have not thought about our trip to Mera, it keeps us going during boring meetings at work (though people sometimes wonder why I've got a smile on my face during serious discussions). The photos & video turned out great. Haven't decided what to do next year, I think we said something about warmer and lower but the mountains call. Anyway, thanks for giving us a great trip.

Just a quick note to thank you for the excellent weekend. I enjoyed the logical approach and feel that I picked up loads of info and am looking forward to putting it in to practice.

Tim - That was great. Absolutely great. What a trip.
Thanks - Richard (Ama Dablam 2003)
Just a quick note to say thanks again for a cracking couple of days. We both felt you structured it really well - the first day set firm foundations for newbie climbers like us, and then the second day was a revelation to get out onto real rock and see what you'd shown us the previous day fall into place. You had incredible patience on the static line next to us, with just the right balance of hints and instruction where necessary yet allowing us to work things out for ourselves.
As a result, the next day we felt confident, nay raring, to go out there and climb on our own. As you know, we went back to Brown Slabs, and as well as the two routes we did with you, we did Brown Slabs Face at V Diff (which felt significantly harder than Brown Slabs Direct, I was extremely glad that I only seconded it!), and the right-hand start to the main gully route up the little slab to the right-hand tree and up into the start of the gully. Didn't do the Arete route, so that's for next time.
We're both back in London now, but can't wait to get back onto the rock. Tim bought the Yorkshire Gritstone guidebook, so we'll have a go at all the Diffs and V Diffs we can find in it, and maybe top-rope a few of the 10-15m Severes and VS's. We'd also like to do a longer multipitch Diff or two (like Corvus which you mentioned) -- so plenty for us to experiment with before we're back for the next stage in our education!!
All the best,
Paddy (2 day 'learning to lead' course 2005)
