Wet EVERYWHERE!

Day 1 of two days working with David and Alex for Mountain Plan. Both have them have led indoors and wanted to look at how they would move on to real rock. With a bad forecast everywhere in Scotland and even some Severe weather warnings it didn't really make a difference where we went. So to try and make the most of the day we headed into Glen Nevis to do some multi pitch. With water pouring down the crags we headed for the gutter to try and concentrate on rope work and placing gear. We did well and managed to get four pitches in before lunch but the rain got worse as the morning progressed. At lunch we decided we had had enough of the rain and the midge and ran away to the Ice Factor.


Pitch two of the gutter. Note the waterproofs and midge nets.

Here we looked at consolidating the ropework, in the dry and then spent some time climbing and looking at some movement skills. It was very busy and who could be blamed for wanting to be inside on a day like today.
