Working with students from West Highland College today.

Today I was out with students from West Highland College, who are studying on the Higher Adventure Leadership course. It was their first day on the 'Mountain Sports Module'. We ascended The Little Buachaille in Glencoe. The weather was kind to us, starting really wet and clearing up as we ascended to the summit, from where amazing views opened up down the glen.
For some this was their first Munro, and others the first chance to concentrate on mountain navigation. It will be really interesting to see how the students develop over their module through to February.
The Mountain module will involve, indoor climbing, outdoor climbing, expeditioning, winter skills and snow sports, leadership and yes I get to go snow boarding and skiing as well!
