Intro to Trad Leading
The last 2 days have been spent working with Elliott and Paul in the Wilton quarries. Yesterday was spent looking at placing runners, builing belays and leading on a toprope. Today the guys made the leap to leading with me alongside. Between them, they managed a range of VDiffs. At the end of the day we rigged an abseil to show how we could retrieve some stuck gear, and also went over rigging a bottom ropes. It is the final day tomorrow, so more leading and a few new bits thrown in.
