In the Gutter!
I met up with Erica, Kris and Yannie in Glen Nevis today. Following on from their Winter Mountaineering course Erica was interested in learning more about rock climbing ropework, placing runners and setting up belays.
We headed up to climb the Gutter in six short pitches getting plenty of practise in placing and removing lots of runners... The other two went for a walk up the gorge and scramble by the side of the Steale waterfalls.
In contrast to yesterday it was overcast but fairly warm with only the odd non aggressive midge buzzing about!!
