After waking up to more rain, my heart sank, as I have spent the previous three days teaching climbing in the Beacon rather than Outdoors. It was meant to be day two of an Intro to Trad climbing, so despite the rain we decided to try Tremadog. So we drove through the rain to get to the crag, where the drizzle stopped.
I can’t say the crag was dry, but it was dry enough, so with Damien who was on the course we climbed Christmas Curry, One Step in the Clouds and Yogi. I got Damien to place gear in the belays and tie into them on the first two routes. However I am trying to build Damien up for lead climbing, which is extremely hard with just one client.
However, the solution was for me to climb the pitch, make a bottom rope and descend to the belay below and then get Damien to simulated lead the pitch and clip into my belay, and then bring me up the pitch. It was way more work for me than I’d usually have to do, but it seemed to work really well.
So probably do some more of that tomorrow, it the rain holds off.
