Advanced Scrambling - learning to lead

I have been out with repeat clients Matt and Karolina today for a spot of scrambling. They have both seconded me on grade 2 and 3 ground in summer and winter and Matt wanted to spend a day looking at the skills needed to get on the sharp end. It has been pretty wet and windy so we escaped the weather by spending the morning at Lion Rock looking at gear placements and getting Matt to lead a multi pitch route with me alongside. We then used the ridge above Bens Bunkhouse in the Pass to get him leading some grade 2 ground. We managed to stay dry all day and its been surprisingly warm too.
