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

We had a really fantastic experience with Cairngorm Adventure Guides! Liam, who helped us organise our trip, was flexible, friendly and answered all our questions. Our guides Rich (3 days) and Gill (1 day) were amazing guides, extremely knowledgeable and just all round lovely people. Pros: All technical gear (except boots) are included in the price making things easy and inexpensive if you don’t own technical equipment. The course itself is very flexible (especially if with friend/partner) as the guiding ratio of 2:1 means the course can cater to you whether you are new to mountaineering or experienced. Have I mentioned how fantastic the guides were!? Both our guides were incredibly knowledgeable and shared their expertise to teach us about reading the conditions, avalanche risk, and kit management, all whilst being out in the mountains! We felt safe at all times and our guides were excellent at finding our comfort levels and making sure we safely pushed our boundaries. Cons: None!!!!! For beginning or improving your climbing/ mountaineering skills, I would 100% recommend these guys. I am actually in the process of trying to get back out with Cairngorms adventure guides and I only returned from my previous trip with them trip 3 days ago! Thanks Rich, Gill and Liam!
