Cold fingers then very wet fingers
Today I was out with Izzi who was looking for some more rock mileage. She has been out with some other instructors recently looking at building belays and placing protection. So today she wanted to get on the sharp end and do some leading. Firstly I led Izzi up all pitches on Donkeys Ears (Severe) at Shepard's Crag in Borrowdale. This gave me an opportunity to see how Izzi was moving on the rock. We then headed up to Brown Slabs and Izzi led 3 pitches up to the top. From here we abseiled down and went to climb a VD on North Buttress but it started to rain so we agreed that I would lead her up Eve (VS 4c). Half way through the route it stopped raining and it was pretty much dry at the top. We got back to the bags just before dark.
