Technical Climbing – What Goes Up…

Cracking technical session this morning with low winters sun on the Pitfichie trails. We had looked to continue round to Cairn William but ice was still present higher up, which although was ridable, didn’t make for an effective coaching environment. So working up Green Hill, the session focused on developing technical climbing skills, the low temps having nicely bound the terrain giving great traction. This is always a hard climb though as you need good stamina to survive to the top, as well as your core weight shift skills. Naturally we also worked on technical descending, as what goes up must come down…..
