Mentoring. Mountaineering Instructor Certificate Trainees.

Another marvellous day in the Scottish Winter.

Day 3 for Andy who is mentoring Tim and Stuart who are MIC trainees. Today we stayed low to avoid the low cloud cover. A day of teaching leading in a gully, lowering clients, abseiling, short roping and a little bit of navigation.

It just illustrates how much experience, time, dedication and hard graft goes into qualifying and becoming a mountaineering instructor certificate holder. And why no other award ( other than BMG ) qualifies you to teach, instruct and guide using ropes in the UK.

We have another 6 days and in between the lads will be out climbing and training towards their assessments.

Best of luck guy's with your ambitions.
