Nina on her first time abseiling!
Amy, practising using the rope only for belaying.
Counting paces is always interesting in a variety of conditions.
The hills are starting to settle down a little, the cold over night temperatures have helped. However there is still a huge amount of unstable windslab out there so be carefull and plan your days sensibly!
Today Andy was out again with Amy, Ed and Nina and Guy, they were concentrating on winter navigation skills, simple rope only belaying skills and back low down more complex use of the rope and climbing equipment, including abseiling, short roping and scrambling techniques.
The two day course has been a really good fun mix of skills and theory, thanks to the guy's for being so understanding given the conditions and their amazing lust for information.
Andy, heads over to the Laggan area on Monday to run a course for http://www.hebrideanpursuits.com/ of two days of ski touring and snow holing skills, should be about the only way of getting around out there!
