Glen Nevis with St Andrews Uni Mountaineering Club
Over the weekend I was out with with St Andrews University Mountaineering Club. On Saturday despite the weather we managed to have a decent day of rope work and rock climbing skills in Glen Nevis. We looked at anchor building, gear placement, rope management, and setting up bottom ropes and abseils. Some very enthusiastic students even managed the wet rock big boot climbing experience.
On sunday we headed into the hills and climbed the Munro Stob Ban in Glen Nevis. We looked at navigation, route finding, group management and some rope work and scrambling too. We had some heavy showers including some snow on the top. Feeling almost wintery.
