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!)

Check out our great range of winter skills, ski touring and winter climbing courses.

Winter courses

The course was a great introduction to winter walking in Scotland. We were a group of 6 plus Liam our guide. On the first day we spent a few hours in the youth hostel covering theory, kit and issues such as avalanche risk before heading towards Cairgorm to practice arrests,navigation and techniques for walking in snow with and without crampons. The second day was a mountain journey which took us to the summit of Cairngorm practicing our winter skills en route and in an area of more plentiful snow to the south of the mountain. The course was very well organised and enjoyable. Liam was the ideal guide - friendly, knowledgable and unflappable.
