Skills in Glen Shiel

Today I have been working with a team of 3 for the first day of their mountaineering course for Moran Mountain.  We took advantage of the great snow conditions high on the mountain which allowed us to practice the relevant skills required for safe travel through the mountains.  After crampon and axe work we had a go at slipping and sliding before roping up and embarking on a grade II gully which lead us up to a Munro.  A really wild top out meant we had a quick stop at the summit, took a bearing and made our way back down.  A wild day!
