I have been joined by Simon for the next three days for our advanced scrambling learn to lead course. A last minute cancellation meant it was just the two of us today and with some pretty challenging weather to add to the mix we went to a single pitch crag to look at the skills involved in placing protection and building belays in a rock climbing context. We also looked at retrievable abseils and taking coils for scrambling so had a day of maximum skill transfer! We are to be joined by regular client Martin tomorrow which will allow us to get onto the mountain routes and put things into a scrambling context.
