Grand old Duke of York...

Day 2 of the PYB MIC trg today and we went to Stob Ban to put yesterday's mountaineering skills into a more serious environment both in ascent and descent. So we were like the Grand old Duke of York going up and down the East Ridge of the North Buttress with the trainees taking point. We also looked at some of the skills required to teach lead climbing. Damper, cloudier but not as windy as it might have been.
 Marching up to the top of the hill...
 ...and marching down again
 Shortroping- a dark art?
 The direct on the tower
 2 teams
 The knife edges
 The last bit...
 Weather not quite so nice
 Down the North Ridge
  The Easter Bunny strikes again
