With the great weather we’ve been having recently it was nice to be off the water and instructing rock climbing for a bit of variety. The venue for the afternoon was to be Trevor Quarry in Llangollen for a taster climb and abseil session. There was quite an age range with the group (youngest 8 years with the eldest being 68 years), which was not easy to manage but everyone had a great time.
The session started with a bit of bouldering (to see how well folk moved) before going vertical and trying a few climbs to practice the new skills which tying on , self checks and belaying. With these skills mastered it was soon time to try the abseil, which is a vertical descent of 100 feet with great views over vale of Llangollen. I’m pleased to say that everyone completed the abseil and were all buzzing with excitement afterwards.
