Mont Blanc training

Yesterday Martin took a team of 3 out for their skills day and today I took them for a ridge outing.  The aim of their two day is to get a little bit of mileage before they head out to the Alps in August for a Mont Blanc ascent.  I took them up onto the Black Carls of Beinn Eighe which is a fantastic grade II ridge.  We had a good look at the rope work required, new movement techniques and safe methods of descent.  The weather was spectacular, blue skies and light winds.  Conditions are great for ice climbing! With a day off tomorrow it would be a waste to not go out climbing.  Cant wait!  Today was my last day's work for Moran Mountain this winter season.
