Intresting time yesterday on the first day of mine and George's trip to snowdonia... After a 5hr drive (mostly in dry conditions) we arrived in the national park.... to ALOT of rain! So not wanting to set up something ridiculous in the wet we picked a small two pitch crag on the road side. Without a clue on grades or route names we set off. I set out as the lead and after 3 or 4 meters it was apparent that climbing roughly the grade of Severe, in the wet while wearing big mountaineering boots... maybe was going to be abit tricky.... and then I fell! I fell several times trying to get the one last move onto the first ledge where we presumed we would belay from. So reluctantly I accepted defeat and handed over to George, who, with a bit more height than I have, sailed through the move! Then we were off! George, instead of only climbing onto that next ledge, continued leading up and across the crag to a much higher but better suited belay stance where I then seconded upto. The moves he had done, wow, commiting to say the least! We now switched again and I led the top pitch, a very slippary blank affair that in the dry would be a slab climbers dream.... well in the wet... it is was no 'dream pitch'. I bimbled up through the moves, achieving marginally acceptable gear placments and scratching around for handholds that didnt have a gorse-bush growing awkwardly out of them! Holds found, I was now on the top. A quick 3 part anchor built and George was soon joining me on the top! A walk off, trip to the bar and roadside cooking session found us tucked up in sleeping bags having planned the next few days. Let's hope that this weather passes soon! ~ ~ #climbing #climbers #climb #multipitch #multipitchclimbing #tradclimbers #tradclimbing #climbingtrip #mountains #mountaineers #mountaineering #skills #skillstraining #climbinginstructor #learntoclimb #climbingcoaching #outdooractivity #outdoorinstructor #joelselfoutdoorinstructor

😢A sad end to yesterday evening as we said goodbye and good luck to Charlotte....! Charlotte's been climbing at the Corsham wall for several years now... with a constant smile, a never failing freindly attitude and some really funky footwork, she's become a solid member of Corsham's climbing scene!🤘💪 But its time for University to begin and I certainly want to wish her all the best in the studying she's going on to do! Charlotte, you've been a pleasure to work with and will be welcome back on my sessions anytime your back in the area! Keep safe and have fun out there! 👋😁 Joel Self Outdoor Instructor ~ ~ #climb #climber #climbing #climbs #indoorclimb #indoorclimbing #indoorclimbingwall #climbingwall #wallclimbing #ropework #knotcraft #rope #harness #climbingequipment #climbingholds #leadclimbing #trainingsession #leadclimb #training #workhardplayhard #climbinginstructor #learntoclimb #climbingcoaching #outdooractivity #outdoorinstructor #joelselfoutdoorinstructor

Good time yesterday, instructing for this small corporate team! These guys were a pleasure to work with as they went through all of the days activities! We kicked the day off on the honda pilots (off road buggys) and some action on the segways doing a skills course, before breaking for lunch and getting stuck into some archery and air-rifle shooting in the afternoon! ~ ~ archery #targets #targetpractice #archer #bowandarrow #rangetime #funintherange #archeryinstructor #archerycoach #outdooractivity #outdoorinstructor #joelselfoutdoorinstructor

Considering tactics and ground based tools for teaching about lead climbing? □ Here is a simple game to help aid the teaching of lead belaying: □ With a rope running through two quickdraws on the wall the instructor clips themselves into a 'running carabiner' in the centre of the rope (and between the draws, bringing the rope down to them in a V). □ A belayer then sets up on each tail of the rope. One is instructed to feed rope out, the other to take rope in. □ The instructor should now be able to lean slightly onto the rope without moving too much as the slack rope is fed out by one belayer and taken in by the other. □ Every so often the instructor can shout "switch" meaning the belayers change who is feeding out / taking in. Or shout falling, at which time the belayers hold fast and 'catch' the fall (instructor steps back). □ Points this game will work on: 1. The general movments and hand actions of lead belaying technique. 1- The change over between giving and taking slack. 2- Moving quickly and naturaly from a feeding / taking position to a locked off catching position. □ Give it a go with your freinds or with your next pair of learn-to-lead clients! □ Climb safe and all the best, □ Joel Self - Outdoor Instructor ~ ~ #climb #climber #climbing #climbs #indoorclimb #indoorclimbing #indoorclimbingwall #climbingwall #wallclimbing #ropework #knotcraft #rope #harness #climbingequipment #climbingholds #leadclimbing #trainingsession #leadclimb #training #workhardplayhard #climbinginstructor #learntoclimb #climbingcoaching #outdooractivity #outdoorinstructor #joelselfoutdoorinstructor ~ ~ Credit to @davisjoby for teaching me this game during a CWLA training course a year or so ago.
