Damper day at Glen Nevis

A wetter forecast for this morning on the last day of our SVQ intro. to climbing course for Lochaber College. I was working with Callum today. After an hour or so indoors reviewing the ropework we have done we went outside as the weather cleared a little. We climbed Styx Buttress Right Wall (VDiff) with Callum building his own belays and then looked at a retreat by abseil. Then we moved over to the Gutter (Diff) which was beginning to dry out. Callum led a pitch and I carried on up the route. We finished with Repton's Right hand Route (VDiff) to round off 3 good days of rock climbing despite the variable weather.
