Idwal Slabs

Simon, Tim and I have been climbing on the Idwal Slabs today. We wanted to look at pitched climbing to have the skills to deal with the crux sections of grade 3 scrambles and so we climbed Ordinary Route (Diff) in series with the boys simu-leading to practice placing gear, building belays and belaying from above and below. The boys then lead the scramble off the top and rigged their own abseil to retreat down into Seniors Gully. It has been dry all day and surprisingly warm for the time of year too.
