Today I had a quick intro to the course, and started to put things in place that need doing. Jimbob you’ll be pleased to know I spent most of the day sorting through new climbing equipment, logging it and colour coding it. Not sure I could be as good a storeman as you though.
I then spent some time doing paper work, and chatting to Christian about the plans for the recce. We are heading out tomorrow for at least five days. The plan is to head south for two hours not that far, but teh dirt track will slow us down. We will look at all the various venues, and climb some of the routes to make sure we know where we are going to take the group.
Feels great to finally arrive at the centre and start getting my teeth into my new job. Ben and Jaya the owners are really supportive and super keen. Although I am worried that the the weather is going to be worse than I expected, but I am grateful I am not spending the majority of my time of the Icecap. Sounds like Scotland in a Hurricane up there. Still all the guys who had just got off where raving about there stories of adventure.
Finally this evening I managed to escape the BB house along with Jaya, NB one of the Ice Cap guides and my laptop. Hence I am blogging in Bursts. I am trying to write mini diary logs and adding them seperately, who nows I might even smell pheck them!
