    I'm interested in doing the following walks this year, mainly during the summer months (I might not get through them all.) As it stands at the moment, I'll be doing them all solo but its always nice to have a partner - so if anyone fancies any of them then give us a shout.

    Tower Ridge
    Glencoe Three Sisters
    Aonach Eagach
    Tryfan
    Liathach
    Snowdon Horseshoe
    Buachaille Etive Mor curved ridge
    Circuit of the Vale of Edale
    Cruachan Horseshoe Walk

    Mark,

    If you're planning on doing Tryfan and the Snowdon Horseshoe why not come along to the OM Supermeet July 3-5th at Rhyd Ddu? There's sure to be plenty of people with similar plans if you want company. While you're at it why not do the Glyders at the same time as Tryfan?

    I'd probably be up for the Edale walk, can you make week days because I do 4 on 4 off at work. I was actually up there today and it was proper heavy snow, was in a group of 13...and we got half way and majority decided they'd like to go down rather than finish up

    Alright, just looked at that list.

    Hopefully will be limping the scottish ones over the next 2 Weeks.

    Just wondering do you do winter walking?

    Well I do definately need to do it at some point as my ambition lies in climbing Mont Blanc... but unfortunately I just don't have the gear at the moment. I have boots for rock, not snow. And by the time I can afford the gear its going to be next winter.

    Otherwise I'd have definately done it. Until the snow clears I'm kinda confined to the Peak District at the mo (I know it snows there, but I don't need crampons!)

    Mark...Curved Ridge is on my 'to do' list for this year. Did Tower Ridge a couple of years back, but would happily do it again. When are you thinking of doing it?

    Nick the Mod....which 'Scottish ones' are you doing over the next 2 weeks?

    Snowie, Driving up from NottinghamSaturday, catch a scottish football match, then a couple of Days in Crianlarch area then off up towards Ratalgan and later a week in Torridon.

    Routes and Hills will be dependent on weather and how my bad knee holds up. (waiting for the NHS to take a knife to it.)

    Certainly Liathach is the main aim. but certainly an outing in Glen Coe is on the cards. I am looking forward to Stalking An Teallach at the end of the journey.

    Sent you a mail Andy... but basically I haven't set dates for any of them so I'm quite flexible. I do hope to get them all done during the summer months - may to september, more often than not at the weekend.
