A view into Coire nan Lochain
looking into the Lost Valley
Belaying and abseiling
Bill and I were out with another team of UHI West Highland College students today. We decided to ignore the whole winter thing given the tropical wet conditions and left the axes and crampons in the bus. Like many other teams (in fact like about 30 other people) we headed for the zigzags. Our aim was to look at managing people on steep ground so we looked at briefing, spotting placing ourselves in the position of most use as well as some simple ropework in ascent and descent. We were quite a large team so thanks for the forebearance of Clive and his students for waiting until we could move aside and let them through.
Off to Ben Nevis tomorrow to see what is still there!
