Rope-work for scrambling. Friday 10th Feb


Grant & Susan have got ropes etc and done some leading in the past but wanted specific techniques for scrambling in the Cuillin. We started with a couple of hours of indoor training here in Luib then, when it had stopped raining, headed out t put things into practice. Sgurr an Fheadain is a great option for this with only a short approach and nearly 2000ft of terrain to practice on.

After a short deomonstration on the opening slabs I passed the rope over to Helen & Grant who worked well together safely to the summit.

Grant looking like the “real deal” in clothes that only an alpine guide would dare to wear!
