Some winter cragging.

Last day of The Abacus Mountain Guides, Winter Mountaineering Course and the guys had said that they wanted to take another look at pitching, abseiling and some more rope work. So with a thaw forecast to set in again during the day, instead of walking up into the snow to have a wet cold day we decided to go cragging in Glen Nevis. We started the day going over constructing belays again and looked at placing some gear. After that we headed up to the Gutter and made a mass ascent putting it all into practise and then finished the day by abseiling off the tree.
I've got a few days off now to catch up with a few people and jobs. I'll be back out on Tuesday with some condition reports hopefully.
