MCofS Seminar Day 2

After a pleasant and sociable evening last night today I had 2 students out for some rock climbing for a short day today. They wanted to look at multi-pitch climbing techniques so we went to Duntelchaig and climbed a rather damp Drum in 4 pitches and then made 2 abseils to descend. We looked at belay construction, plate orientation, use of the harness belay loop vs the rope loop and retreating from a route by a multipitch abseil.
Views of the Cairngorms showed a reduced snowcover- very lean looking.
