Cracking weekend on the Student Safety Seminar

I had a blast this weekend at the MCofS Student Safety Seminar. Yesterday I was teaching climbing at a slimy Kingussie Crag that in no way dampened the spirits of my 2 students. Last night was a great, civilised but fun night in the bar with the excellent 'human tarantula' game courtesy of Lucy from Glenmore Lodge's IDS. Today I was working with Sammy (who I taught to lead on a trip to  Lofoten last summer) and Amy. They've lead Agags Groove but wanted some multipitch rope work tips and some ideas on how to avoid and solve basic problems. Top fun, enthusiastic students, great volunteers an awesome venue. Well done Heather Morning of the MCofS and the Climb Scotland team in close support!
