An office with a view.

The Abacus Mountain Guides team and myself headed up to the Ben today to give the legs a bit of a rest and stay low to look at some rope work and scrambling skills. We walked in looking at some navigation (I know we could see for about a 100 miles but you have to work with what you get) and made our way up to Coire Leis with N.E. buttress and the whole of Observatory gully as our back drop. We managed to cover quite a bit and the team had to dig hard for their snow belays and we kept stopping to look up at teams on Orion, Point 5, Zero gully and a few other classics, all good inspiration for the team.
