Aonach Eagach

Today I wanted to give Simon and Vicki the opportunity to put some of the ropework they had seen on Curved Ridge into practise. We went to the Aonach Eagach (the 'Notched Ridge') with Fiona ( out to watch me at work as part of her ongoing prep for her MIA assessment. Again we talked a lot about route selection and only brought the rope out for a few isolated sections to look at ways for them to protect each other in ascent and descent. The weather was dry and bright all day - hot when there was no wind but it was bitter in the northerly breeze. I'm off to Switzerland for 2 weeks this weekend so I doubt I'll file reports until I return.
