3 days in the west....

The Glenmore Lodge MIA Training course travelled west for a change of venues for the last 3 days. On Monday we were looking at series ropework at Polldubh in slightly showery conditions. Isi and Erin and I racked up a good clutch of pitches examining stance selection and management.

After a good night at Inchree (and too much of the great food at the 4 Seasons Bar/Restaurant) yesterday saw us heading for the Buachaille for the mountaineering day. the forecast was spot on as Colin, Ross and I worked on the 'grey art' of short-roping. Then it was back to Inchree to fill the drying room and another huge meal.

Today dawned a little grey and the rivers were still very full. So it was plan B and back to Polldubh where Stevie, Colin and I climbed Pinnacle Ridge, 3 Pines and Secretaries Direct to look at parallel rope technique. The guys did well to get their head around tangle free changeovers and the necessary stance and rope management on the first truly hot day's rock climbing I've had since the spring! Secretaries is one of the best Severe's in scotland and today the sun reflecting off of the big sheets of schist that make up the climb left me remembering what climbing is all about!

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's both equally
educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the
head. The problem is an issue that not enough people are speaking intelligently about.

Now i'm very happy I found this during my search for something concerning this.

Look into my web page Louis Vuitton Bags
