May has seen a lot of changes, both in weather conditions and Covid restrictions and guidance. The month started with winter still being very present in the Scottish hills, which allowed us to get a couple of last wintery outings.
Focus changed for us through the month to rock climbing in both North Wales and Scotland; delivering National Governing Body Award training courses, such as Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor, Mountain Leader and Lowland Leader.
The highlight was probably Paul popping up with Finn to complete a traverse of the Skye Ridge in pretty favourable conditions.
John and I delivered a Lowland Leader Award Training at the weekend for Falkirk Community Trust Outdoors. A varied group of seven candidates and pleasant weather made for a good course.
