Back on the rock

There's still a lot of good Winter climbing to be had at the moment but this week was my transition into rock climbing. Andy and I headed to Glen Nevis to practice some rescues in between the sleet showers which went well!
Next Dave, Andy and I went on a road trip to the 'Moray Riveria' to find some sunshine and dry rock! We headed to Cummingston, and looked at the venue with regards to teaching climbing. Some useful bits and pieces gained as well as having fun getting back on the rock. We climbed a couple of routes each, up to HVS 5a.

 Yesterday I was working with Julie for West Highland College. With some more sunshine we thought it'd be a shame not to head outside so we went to Kingussie Crag. I was working with Anne, Becky, Rachel, Hannah and Emily, who have just completed their CWA training. We rigged up a bottom rope on Right Hand Crack, a smashing HVS and had a chat about the rigging as well as some coaching on the climbing.

We finished the day setting up a group abseil and the girls had a chance to run this. A great day again and some good effort from the students!

Pretty steep!
