Outward Bound Classic Course.

The group heading upto Na Gruagaichean.

I'm in the middle of instructing a 3 week Classic Course at the moment at Loch Eil Outward Bound. It started last Saturday and so far the group has been on a 2 day canoe exped up the Great Glen, Sea Kayaking out by Arasaig and a day of climbing and abseiling in Glen Nevis. Over the last three days we have been on our training mountain expedition in some pretty mixed weather. We started in Kinlochleven and walked up to Coire na Lochain at the Eastern end of the Mamores. On day two we headed up onto the ridge and made our way West along the ridge to camp just below Stob Ban. Yesterday we carried on along the ridge and descended to the visitor centre in Glen Nevis. The group have their solo and a day of Gorge walking left before they head off on their final unaccompanied four day expedition.

Looking North toward Sgurr a Mhaim and Ben Nevis.
