Skye Part 2: Sun, wildlife and dry rock!

posted in: Uncategorized | 0
Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday saw the first of the Mountaineering Council of Scotland’s Introductory to Scrambling courses on Skye.
Mick and Angus were with me for the course and had great fun working on basic rope work skills, movement on (dry and wet) rock and anchor selection on a range of terrain.
