I had a beginners climbing day booked in for yesterday, but unfortunately the weather wasn’t playing ball, and despite the lovely sunshine in the morning, the clients called early to cancel. So, I went with Ben Wells anyway, as he’s heading towards doing his SPA and wanted a single pitch rigging day. We made for the Upper Tier at Craig Pant Ifan, and had a grand time going through the ropes with Ben. His rigging is already very good, but he’s not that used to preparing ropes for beginners to bottom rope from (he’s a rope technician in the fire brigade), so we spent a bit of time on that, and got a couple of short climbs in too before the rain set in early afternoon.
