MLTA Regional group meet

This weekend I have been hosting a meeting of the Scottish Regional Group of the MLTA.- the representative organisation for UK Mountain based National Governing Body Award Holders. On Saturday the 6 people attending decided on a climbing based day and we went to Kingussie Crag. People were working at all levels: from Cath who led her first route to Duncan and Wendell who are preparing for their MIA assessment. Fine weather and a good chance to get a few routes in whilst networking and picking the brains of other people working in the outdoors.
On Sunday we again had 6 people and Rich Parker of BigSky Mountaineering kindly donated his time to join us. Duncan, Mark and I climbed No Blue Skies (VS 4c) in Coire an t Sneachda in a cold northerly wind with a little water on it whilst the other 5 made a careful massed ascent of the classic (and very loose) Finders Ridge (Diff) in their walking boots. A grand day out and hopefully useful for those who attended.

Hi Alan, looks like it was a great weekend!nice one. Rachael was going to join you but had to come back to Wales, however we would like to congratulate you on hosting a really good event. I'm hoping to come up to Scotland for the last weekend of July, so if there's anything going on that weekend I'll join you.
