Ledge route, Ben Nevis
A productive day on Ledge route, Ben Nevis today. The guys were last out on Curved ridge in Glen Coe earlier in the summer and today we looked at mountaineering skills with the guys leading themselves.
Once on Ledge route we looked at body belaying as a safe technique for short steeper steps as well as looking for direct anchors to put the rope around to keep people safe.
After, we ‘moved together‘ with the rope over the easier ground and highlighted the pros and cons of having the rope out and tying people together - not always safer!
