Back with students from West Highland College in Glen Nevis I was teaching lead rock climbing again yesterday. Kate has done a lot of climbing before and wants to push her grade while Johan has done a lot of climbing on sport routes but nothing using traditional protection. The rain surrounded us for a few hours in the morning without quite reaching us so we enjoyed some dry rock to start off with. We were at Hangover Buttress which has a couple of climbs that are well sheltered from the rain so even when the rain got to us we were dry for a while. The rain did arrive in the end though and we enjoyed the super slippy mica schist in the wet! If you go rock climbing in Scotland you need to be prepared for anything!
