Garbh-bheinn; rope training. 22 January


John, Steve, Marco, Ed, Tom & Spud are off to the alps this summer and have chosen the Cuillin for their alpine training course. After a couple of hours refresher in the warmth of the Luib office we headed just up the road to Garbh-bheinn to put it into practice.

Approaching up the NW ridge of Garbh-bheinn; Red Cuillin behind.

We roped into 3 seperate parties to descend a steep gully to the foot of the north face before discussing & setting up an abseil for everyone to learn from.

Concentration as Spud tests the anchors and checks that the rope reaches!

Tom feeling confident.
