May Update

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.

Looking for new routes on Beinn Fionnlaidh with Mac and Sharon.

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.
