Day 4, Ozzimosis Area

After a very snowy start we headed for the Ozzimosis area today for some focused leading instruction. All the team lead a number of routes up to WI3 with lots of focus on technique and placing ice screws. We also made some ice threads and looked at the retreat procedure for escaping a route. All the routes were in good condition including the classic of the area, Ozzimosis WI4. 7 routes climbed in total and another great day out!

Mark Rock Climbing Course

‘Having spend three days in the mountains with Paddy I’ve got to say he’s the best guide I’ve ever worked with. Everything was pitched perfectly for my individual level - the choice of climbs, the balance between learning and mileage on the crag, all suited my level of experience. In three days I went from never having climbed trad to leading VD, seconding HVS+ and ticking off a classic mountain route, all thanks to Paddy’s professionalism and enthusiasm. Can’t wait to get out there again!’
