Coaching for Kate

After a trip to the opticians and a stop to vote (good luck Scotland, either way) I headed up to Polldubh to meet Kate. She's interested in some trad coaching and this afternoon was a chance for us to climb together to see if we both think it would work. We climbed a couple of routes, 5 pitches in all talking about leading and the tactical, technical, physical and psychological components that make up skilful lead climbing. I suggested a couple of strategies for helping with her breathing and self talk and we agreed there is more I can contribute to her climbing… so more later!
