Advanced Scrambling

Gary, Michael and I spent the day looking at the skills involved in leading roped scrambles today. We based ourselves in the Llanberis Pass and looked specifically at anchor selection, placing gear, building belays, short pitching and abseil descents as well as discussing the issues of speed versus safety in this type of ground. It was showery but not too bad although the wind was picking up throughout the day.
