03-02-14, Cummingston, Moray Coast - Trad Rock Climbing
Avoided the windy mountains today. The north facing tidal Cummingston on the Moray coast, was very pleasant and sandy! Even though we were escaping the weather, it was a valuable day for Karl, on his 7 day quest to learn all he can about winter climbing and mountaineering, as trad climbing is something he has done very little of. We climbed a lot of routes from Moderate - Hard Severe in trainers, along the way looking at belaying, runner placements, building solid anchors and abseiling.
