February rock climbing!
Sun and lovely dry rock for climbing on!!! Making use of the unseasonably warm temperatures and dry rock we looked at more advanced rope-work for rock climbing and abseiling. The guy's loved it and lead their first Difficult route in trainers using just the long slings. We then abbed off the Pinnacle them setting up their own abseil while using cows tails. Next they seconded a couple of more tricky climbs and learned about placing and removing hex and wire runners. Judging by the chat I think might be hooked on the rock climbing now.... :-)
