Intro to Scrambling

I have been into Cwm Idwal today with Mike and Andy for an intro to scrambling course here in Snowdonia. The day started off overcast but quickly brightened and we enjoyed a good day heading up Seniors Gully and then Seniors Ridge to the summit of Glyder Fawr before descending the Devils Kitchen. Along the way we coached movement skills, route finding and risk assessments before looking at how to use the rope to protect a nervous second and retreat off a difficult step.
I am off the Spain for the weekend now on our Costa Blanca Rock Climbing course, roll on the sun!
