There was ice to scrape from the car this morning but that was the precursor to a wonderful Autumn day. We’ve an Introduction to Scrambling Course running and Alan, Andy, Dave and Karen have certainly brought some fine weather with them. Ascending Glyder Fawr by the False Gribin (aka True Gribin) and Gribin Ridge we talked about and practiced the movement skills which aid efficient progress as well as learning about and using tools to assess and mitigate risk.

Descending by Seniors Ridge and the climbers descent path through the centre of the Gribin Facet we had time enough in the day to introduce the concept and mechanics of how to use a rope as a means of protection on scrambling ground.
