crag refresher, Shieldaig

rigging an abseil station at Shieldaig

On Sunday I did a crag refresher at a couple of crags in Shieldaig.  The workshops were for a varied group – one of them was a relative novice, two of the others already hold their SPA and the other two intend to train on the SPA scheme.  We looked at a ‘good crag’ and a ‘not-so good crag’ which gave a lot of opportunities for comparisons, real problems and discussion.  We covered our own role at the crag, group management and systems for group abseil & bottom roping.  Thanks again to Claire and Richard at Kinloch for their excellent facilities and food!
