Learning to Lead

In storm force winds Hans and Laura showed fine style leading up 2 pitches at Lion Rock this morning. We created an abseil descent and then went to the warmth (? ish) of the Beacon. This was timed nicely with the incoming rain.

Indoors we looked at a variety of climbing techniques and skills. To finish the week off, some uses for the prussic loop were covered for self-rescue, basic hauls and escaping the system.

If anyone enjoys kayaking the rivers are all well up this evening. I'm unfortunately missing the opportunity as I head south to Portland, to clip bolts.
