Low Port & Cockleroy

I was doing some staff training today with the Instructors from Low Port Centre in Linlithgow. We spent the morning looking at solving problems and performing rescues in a climbing wall environment. We were able to utilise the excellent small wall they have at the centre and used the CWA (Climbing Wall Award) syllabus as a basis for the problems and rescues.

In the afternoon we went out to Cockleroy hill and looked at security on steep ground/the ropework covered by the Summer Mountain Leader Award. Care is required on the South side of this hill due to the loose nature of a lot of the rock, but there are some good areas for this sort of ropework. Lots of good input throughout the day from a very experienced group of Instructors. Sleet and rain showers in the afternoon on a Southerly wind.
