After yesterday on Buachaille Etive Mor the guys looked at the weather forecast and opted for a low lying day in Glen Nevis. Having seen some mountaineering ropework skills in context yesterday we did some work on ground of various angles and difficulty to let them apply a wide range of simple ropework techniques. By the end of a drizzly day and after an ascent of the Gutter they were coping well with moving up short steps of difficulty and protecting each other appropriately with strong but simple belays and anchors.
