Advanced Scrambling - learning to lead
Gez and I had to adapt our plans today as it was much wetter than the weather forecast had suggested. We wanted to look at placing wires and general problem solving and belay building skills for grade 3 scrambles and so with strong winds and heavy rain we went to Lion Rock. It brightened up as the day went on and Gez lead a couple of multi pitch routes and along the way we looked at building and tying into multi anchor belays, solving simple problems, multi pitch abseils and gear placement.
