Training for single pitch sessions

Today I cycled out to Glen Nevis in dry weather to provide some site specific training on running Single Pitch climbing and Abseiling sessions for Ian and Andy from The Ice Factor. The weather was dry and breezey enough to keep the midges away and there were several teams from Outward Bound there as well as Scott having a solo about.
We looked at ways of making sessions more interesting and maximising climbing time using creative warmups, bouldering games and scrambling approaches to climbing areas. I then observed the guys as they ran an enjoyable session for 6 local school children.
