Crags are Black but the Climbing Wall is Warm

A couple of ducks not massively impressed with the conditions either!

Crags not much whiter at lunch time 😦

Plan A today was for a foray into the wilds of Coire an t-Sneachda, but upon waking up this morning and looking out the window it was obvious that Plan B was needed.

Gordon working the rope systems

Gordon and I enjoyed a full day at the Glenmore Lodge climbing wall. We worked on effective and efficient seconding and best practice for gear storing and changeover on belays. We also looked at worst case scenarios if I as the guide /  instructor was injured when leading. This involved ascending ropes, rigging abseils and some theoretical scenarios. Good use of a day off the hill.

Tomorrow looks wintery and wild so we’re going to head in early and see what happens!
