Ice Factor...

With gales forecast this morning John, Chris, Scott, Iain and I decided after some deliberation to visit the Ice Factor in Kinlochleven.

Matt Stygall had also joined us which allowed a better coaching ratio.  Putting this to good use we spent a bit of time looking at some basic ropework before honing our skills on the vertical ice.

With tired arms we also visited 'Pinnacle Buttress' in Glen Nevis to experiment with gear placement and some belays despite the high winds...
