Summer rock sport action today. SPA Training in Glen Nevis.

It was a dry but very cold day in Glen Nevis today. Snow continues to envelope the mountains and ice can still be seen low down in seepage lines. I was working with three young men from UHI whom have their SPA assessments coming up. They were keen to refresh their skills. So they top and bottom roped climbs, abseiled,  created anchors and lead some routes. Snow fell or should I say was blown through the glen but luckily the rock remained very dry. Ben Nevis has a very good covering of snow, as do the hills along Loch Leven and  in Glencoe. Winter is still with us and looks as though it will be for a wee while to come.
