For the second day of lead coaching with Bala'sz and Jenny we went to Buachaille Etive Mor to climb the uber classic Agag's Groove. This was to give the guys a feel for the bigger climbs with a much bigger feel. We drove out of the valley mist and up the glen into fantastic sunshine so we knew we were onto a great day. We used the bottom section of Curved Ridge to go over some Alpine moving together on a rope skills before setting off up the climb. This we did simulating Jenny and Bala'sz leading but with me going up each pitch first to provide a rope from above. They placed their own protection and did their own belaying all the way and the top rope was quite loose to provide a little of the leading sensation!
Few places are better for rock climbing in the sunshine than Rannoch Wall. We had a wonderful time climbing up, soaking up the warm sun, before abseiling down January Jigsaw. There were anchor ropes in places for this making it a bit easier and these often get tidied away at the end of the summer. It turned into a very sociable day with a few other climbers around to chat with. It was great to see a few people out enjoying the climbing, the weather and just being out in the hills.
