Dry Tooling Crag

After yesterdays 10 hour session on the hill and dealing with some of the strongest winds I've been out in, we opted for a 9am start and a 8 minute walk in to a dry tooling crag which Martin developed. The aim of the day was to experiment with what axes and crampons can and cant do on rock as well as having a great work out. Simon, Lloyd and Andy all managed to get up the easiest route which they were really pleased with as it equates to a grade V mixed route. I then popped a rope on a harder route where they all put top efforts in but unfortunately unable to keep the lactic acid away and make it too the top. The crag provided so great options for Andy to practice his gear placements and belay building, something he has done little of and aloud Simon and Lloyd to carry out some problem solving.
