BMC Club Rope Skills

Steve well dug in in a bucket seat

For the second day of the BMC Club Training Program we headed into Glencoe and the stomp up to Coire nan Lochan. Today was ropework day and we worked through bucket seats, buried axe belays, stompers, direct belays and abseiling off snow bollards plus a quick emergency snow shelter. The remaining snow was well saturated and stable and we saw a couple of large rockfalls.
