Old Man of Stoer

Rock climbing trip to Coigach

We have been so lucky with the weather these last few days. Monday was a spectacular blue sky day in the NW so we headed over to climb the Old Man of Stoer followed by pies in Lochinver.

After a night of rain it was slow to clear on Tuesday but in the end we had loads of sunshine and a good breeze to keep the midges away and we climbed at Reiff. All the guys from 29 Commandos lead several pitches of trad climbing.

Today on our last day of our mini exped to the north west we climbed Stac Pollaidh and were rewarded with some excellent views in every direction.

Lee leading at Moy

High pressure week of rock climbing

Great to have had some rock climbing work this last week. Excellent stable weather and a motivated team of guys from 29 Commandos doing Adventure Training with me.

We've been climbing at Duntelchaig, Cummingston, Kingussie and Moy Rock. We've looked at top rope and bottom rope set ups and abseiling. Yesterday they all got stuck into the sport climbing and even led a route.

Frazer on Agag's Groove

Rock climbing with ATC Scotland

Based out of Cameron Barracks Inverness for the last couple of weeks I've been running an Adventure Training Course for the British Army. We have been lucky with the weather and have managed to climb on dry rock everyday except one.

Over the last 3 days we headed to Glencoe and Lochaber to avoid the bad weather coming in from the North East. We had a great time climbing Ben Nevis via Ledge Route, Buchaille Etive Mor via Agag's Groove and a day up Glen Nevis with all the students managing a trad lead.
