Mountaineering Course

Yesterday I took a day off and Thursday I was assisting Kenny with 5 clients. As the weather was terrible, we spent the day in the Ice Factor rock and ice climbing, dry tooling and showing the guys rope work techniques and rescue procedures.

Today I was shadowing Andy Spink as he was running a mountaineering course for 3 people. We looked at snow anchors, avalanche conditions, emergency shelters, weather, using the rope for protection. We were on the edge of Callert Hill in some good snow patches, winds looked strong on the tops but we were relatively sheltered and in the the sun.
