I was running the second day of an SPA today for Al Halewood. The forecast wasn't really looking good anywhere but we kept our fingers crossed and hoped the weather would be better at Kingussie than here on the West as is quite often the case. It thankfully paid off and we didn't really get much rain during the day but the ground is soaked at the moment with plenty of mud around at the top of the crag.
Looking at problem solving on a 'group abseil'
We spent the day looking at personal climbing, problem avoidance and solving with some discussions about environmental impacts of climbers and groups on crags and a chance for the guys to put into practise some of the rescues they had covered at the wall yesterday with Al.
