Lowe Alpine - family climbing day

Valentines Day, and time for a a fun indoor climbing day with people from Lowe Alpine.
For many month I've offered to take Rob and Tanya's family climbing at Kendal Climbing Wall. Rob and Tanta are the Lowe Alpine Technicians who ensure the design information is transfered accuratelly to the production staff.
After a few fun warm-up games they were soon bouldering and scrambling in the bouldering chambers before going into the main area and climbing up the steep walls.

Outside it was cold and ice had formed overnight on car windscreen..

Next weekend I'll be off to Scotland for some winter climbing and mountaineering, possibly on Ben Nevis.
The weather (winds and new snow) mean it may be routes on ridges, possibly Towere Ridge, to avoid cornices and avalanches.
