Idwal Slabs

For the second day of our advanced scrambling learn to lead course John, Shae and I headed to the Idwal Slabs. We wanted to look at placing gear, building belays, belaying from above and below and abseiling and so climbed Ordinary Route. The guys then lead the scramble off and we did an abseil looking at the use of prussiks to self protect. It stayed dry all day. After work I headed out cragging with Baggy in the Pass, the nights are drawing in now and there was an autumnal freshness in the air.
