Preparing an abseil

Student Safety Weekend

I was working at Glenmore Lodge this weekend on the Mountaineering Scotland Student SMART Seminar. On the Saturday I was out with Dougie and Anvir at Huntly's cave. Although windy it was surprisingly warm for the time of year. All change on Sunday as the wind swung to the North and we had our first blast of winter air with some snow on the tops. I was climbing at Kingussie with Mhairi on Saunday. I was working in my role as St John Scotland Mountain Safety Instructor
