S4 Winter Skills Weekend

S4 pupils accompanied by Mrs Macleod, Mr Oliphant and Mr Watson climbed high on Meall a’ Bhuiridh to reach snow on the Winter Skills weekend. Despite poor weather conditions everyone remained cheerful as they learned how to walk in crampons, cut steps and self arrest with ice axes. The instructors praised the pupils’ resilience. Later in the day the pupils worked on their climbing skills back at the Ice Factor climbing walls in Kinlochleven. On Sunday the group walked into the Lost Valley in Glencoe and managed to avoid the worst of the weather.

Well done to all who took part !
