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 2019

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

Winter courses

Just finished a fantastic intro to ski touring 2 day course with our very knowledgeable instructor Malcolm. There were 6 of us on the course (not inc Malcolm) and all completely new to ski touring and varying levels of ski experience. Malcolm adapted the course when required to suit all and took our course at a speed that was comfortable for everyone. The result being that we all had a fantastic time. The weather took a drastic turn for the worse with the heavy snow on the 2nd day and safety was put first cutting our time on the slope short. However we were probably all quite glad as we were definitely feeling the physical demands ski touring puts on your body by then lol. All in all, a well organised and thoroughly enjoyable course. We'd definitely recommend and would look at trying out the other courses on offer in the future. Thanks to the team, Barry, Ellie, Ant, Peter, our excellent guide Malcolm and event organiser Liam for a brilliant 2 days. Scott and I are properly knackered but loved sharing this experience with you all.Just finished a fantastic intro to ski touring 2 day course with our very knowledgeable instructor Malcolm.
