Advanced Scrambling - learning to lead

I have been out with repeat client Robin today on the Idwal Slabs. We climbed Ordinary Route in big boots to look at the skills involved in leading grade 3 scrambles. We focused on gear placements and belays before Robin lead the scramble off the top of the Slabs. We then headed over to the Gribin Facet and looked at abseil set ups. We managed to stay dry all day despite it generally being overcast, a small ray of sunshine happened to be sitting over Cwm Idwal!
