Despite the weather the guys that turned up for this weekend's workshop were really keen to get out and consolidate some skills. With a slightly better weather forecast for Saturday we decided to look at short roping and then improvised rescue on the Sunday. We went over to Cwm Idwal and climbed the NW Face Route up to Seniors ridge and then made a descent of Seniors Ridge Direct which takes a line just below Suicide Wall.

The second day was a bit of a wash out but we decided to go to Tremadog and hope that we could get some shelter from the rain - fat chance! We took shelter around the Oberon area and worked on some key rescue skills separated by a "chat" in Eric's Cafe.
