Ice Factor Skills Day
With the forecast still warm and poor, the avalanche forecast high it was not the best day to be on the hill with what we wanted to achieve. After discussion, we headed to the ice factor which allowed us to cover a massive amount of ropework, work on crampon use by doing a spot of climbing and do an intro to using climbing wall, which was an aim for many at some point. Armed with loads of new skills, ideas and increased confidence. We are hoping for an ok day to finish tomorrow where they can try out all these new skills. Fingers crossed.
