I am running a Learn to Lead course for EBO Adventure this week. After introductions yesterday, the two clients and I went over to Roche Rock for knot tying, ropework and a spot of belay training. Today, however, we ventured down to Halldrine Cove, in the district of West Penwith. It is my favoured location to take the inexperienced and those who want to learn about rock climbing and the skills (ropework etc) required to remain safe. Yet again, the guys perfomed extremely well and both of them managed to lead a climb at the end of the day. We had the place to ourselves and didn't see anyone all the time we were there. We all came back with red faces as the sun has been quite fierce over the past few days, but it could havealso been due to a bitingly cold north wind! Tomorrow night we are going to stay at the Penzance YHA, as this will give us two full days on the rock (the climbing venues in West Penwith are approx. an hour from Newquay). I just hope the wind changes direction tonight, or drops in strength (or both.) over night, otherwise I will have to beak out my thermals again.
