East Ridge of Y Garn

Today we went into Idwall and onto the East ridge of Y Garn. This ridge has a grade 1 approach ridge which is excellent for looking at route choice and examining consequences. The main scramble is in the upper section. This offers some varied grade 2 scrambling which was perfect for looking at how we can use a rope to safe gaurd scrambles. We picked our way up the ridge talking about route choice and where, when and how the rope can be best used. After topping out we did a little bit of nav practise on the way down and reveiw the weekend as we walked back to the car.
