A day of two halves.

Working with the first years on the Outdoor Tourism degree today and it was the first climbing day on the course for them all. With a group of mixed abilities and a mixed forecast Jo, Al and myself took the group to the Ice factor to cover the key skills of belaying and tying in. For some this was not a problem as they already had their first trad leads under their belt or were very close to it.
 
Al and Jo stayed in the dry and I took a team of 5 back to Glen Nevis were we covered placing gear, building anchors and for a couple of guys, one who is working towards a CWA ass and one who already has his SPA we looked at rescues. Same again tomorrow with the other half of the year but it should be dry tomorrow.
