Lessons today.

I was out with Nick of Alpha Mountaineering today. Having decided to try and push the grade a little this year after several IV5s, I thought I would use the services of one of the guides down the wall. We went for Pot Of Gold on the Mess of Pottage, at V6 it would be just the sort of thing I would be looking to lead in the not to distant future.
The day was good, full of useful tips and hints and importantly a good insight into some steeper harder terrain. The conclusion was a few more IV’s wouldn’t go a miss. Still the route was good, technical and well protected where it mattered. One to consider for the future.
