Staff and SPA Training

On Friday with the Falkirk Community Trust staff team I climbed at Craig More Crag near Crieff. The crag was dry and we had a great time at this pleasant venue.

This weekend I have been running an SPA Training course on behalf of EICA Ratho. Yesterday, we visited Rosyth Quarry in the torrential rain showers and today we climbed at The Hawcraig (Aberdour). Both venues dried quickly when the rain stopped and have very little seepage to worry about.

Aberdour and Rosyth

Over the last couple of days I have been at Aberdour and Rosyth. Firstly, on Thursday with Lucy and Doug looking at lead climbing skills and yesterday staff training with the Falkirk Team.

Rosyth was mostly dry with some seepage on the odd route. The second pitch of Fish Head Arete at Aberdour is loose at the moment, particularly in the middle section.

Aberdour and Rosyth

Amy, Dawn and I have been out in Fife today climbing at Aberdour (The Hawcraig) and Rosyth. We spent the day looking at the skills required to lead traditional rock climbs.

The weather was perfect and both of the crags were perfectly dry. Aberdour was a popular choice today with lots of other climbers around.
