Introduction to lead climbing Day 1
Today I was out with a group of students from Lochaber College on the Outdoor Education Course. This is a 3 day course and hopefully by the end the students will be ready to lead routes unsupervised. Today we went up to Kingussie Crag and climbed several routes on front face of the upper tier. We climbed Little Wall (Diff*), The Groove (Hard Severe**), The Block (Very Difficult), The Slab (Difficult **), Right-hand Crack (HVS 5A**) and finished on First Pull (VS 4C). The rock was nice and dry, we had no rain, only a cold breeze.
