For the last two days I have been out climbing with Rob and Martin, who have come up from London for some Performance Climbing Coaching. These are always really good courses to work on, as they require me to gauge where the guys are at and then hand pick rotues that will help them develop there climbing. Mix this in with teh weather the last couples of days and I really had my work cut out.
That said we managed to get loads of climbing and coaching done. I got the impression that the guys really enjoyed it. Hopefully they will enjoy the rest of the weekend. Although tomorrow morning is looking like a total washout.
It was great to hear that they felt the course offered very bespoke and individualised advice on thier climbing, and I gave them a few things to go away and concerntrate on. As for teh rotues, we nipped up Rio so I could see them climb, they then lead Yogi. They then lead the first pitch of Grim Wall and the second of Grim Wall Direct, before we finished the day off with them following me up the First Pitch of Grim Wall Direct.
Today we were at Rhoscolyn, and they lead Icarus and Traunt, and another route on the traunt slab. I am all jumared out now, and looking forward to celebrating being 36 tomorrow. Although I suspect I shall start with a small celebration tonight.
