Poor show on the blog... #rockclimbing #mountaineering and #filmsafetywork

14th June 2019

It's been a poor show on the blog front, mainly due to family and film work distractions....

We've had a scattering of teams out over the last while doing mountaineering training and being guided on great routes like The Curved Ridge and Tower Ridge. Summer hasn't really happened yet. After a week of fairly good wearher it turned cold and mixed, and has struggled to stay long for more than a few days at a time. We really were spoilt last year.

This time of year is always busy with film safety work and most of the CAG team have been involved with various TV and film productions. The variety of the work is always interesting, although you need to watch three courses lunches and not burning enough calories! https://www.mountainandwatersafety.co.uk/

Here are a few photos of CAG teams of late (Yes, many of these photos are of the last month!)

Winter courses

Fantastic value for money, excellent course I did a Winter Skills two-day weekend course in early February 2019. It was excellent, very well organised and super value for money. There were 4 of us on the course with one instructor so we got very specific and personalised feedback throughout. We covered all of the key skills, including navigation techniques, ice axe arrests, walking in different types and gradients of snow, using crampons, identifying snow conditions and potential dangers. Laurie was a great guide, very patient, extremely knowledgeable and experienced. The course included an hour of 'classroom' learning before we got into the mountains and minibus transfer to and from the mountains each day. I feel confident about going into the mountains in winter now, fully equipped with the necessary skills and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the course and Cairngorm Adventure Guides.
