Ropework Training-13/08/2008

Today Big Al, Chuck and I went for a little staff training day in Glencoe. As I have my MIA Training booked in November, we thought it would be a good idea to start brushing up on my rope work skills. Today we decided to explore a new crag (Far East Buttress on Aonach Dubh) and Big Al ran me through some of the rope work considerations for teaching and guiding 2 clients at a time. Big Al led Chuck and I up Farewell Arete (V Diff, 3 pitches) in series, Chuck led Nirvana Wall (Severe, 3 pitches - the last excellent) in series and I led them both up Rough Slab (also Severe, 1 good long pitch with a grand finish) in parallel.
