Fantastic conditions for The Aonach Eagach Ridge today.

It never fails to impress the Aonach Eagach Ridge in Glencoe. Today I was experiencing how the client feels on the other end of the rope whilst mentoring Tom Sylvester who is about to take his MIC Mountaineering Instructors Certificate assessment and on his performance today he will do really well. Tom is one of our valued freelance instructors and it is always a pleasure to see talent blossem. An awesome day on this constantly interesting and challenging ridge climb. It was also Hebridean Pursuits modern apprentice's Glen Howatson first grade III winter climb and I think it will be an amazing memory and learning experience for him, not to mention fantastic fun. Not a bad apprentiship! Thanks guys what a day out..I learnt loads too.
