Pre-Skye Meet Abseiling Practice at Logiehead (18 May 2008)

On Sunday 18th May, Malcolm, Colin and Alex set off for Logiehead near Cullen for an introductory session, with Andy, on abseiling and climbing – in hopeful preparation for an ascent of the Inaccessible Pinnacle on Skye in a fortnight’s time.

The walk from Cullen along the coast to Logiehead was very pleasant and we were fortunate to receive great weather throughout the day.

On reaching Logiehead, various abseiling safety techniques were discussed and demonstrated before several abseils were undertaken by all.

After the abseiling practice, Alex, Colin and Malcolm all successfully bottom-roped the climb “Bladder Wrack”
a 10m Severe rock climb.
