Rock before rain!

With the rain due at lunchtime long term client Ruairidh and I got a very early start for Polldubh to work on some more lead climbing. Today Callum came along as a belayer and to get some experience for his own development.
Ruairidh jumped onto Reptons Right Hand Route on the sharp and and after leading that in one long pitch we abseiled off and headed for the Alp so he could do the same to Styx Buttress Right Wall.
Callum had been belaying patiently so we let him take us up Resurrection and after another abseil he went and rigged a top rope above SW Buttress as practise towards his SPA. I made use of this by getting Ruairidh to lead Tear and take some falls on his gear backed up by the toprope. I stripped the gear just as the rain arrived. Winner!
