This Saturday, Eric and Amy came to Rumney to take a step in their climbing experience: leading.

We started the day in the Meadows on Mom”s Pancake to warm up and talk generally about lead climbing.   After, we headed over to the Parking Lot Wall and hopped on Glory Jean’s.

Stopping for a snack and water, we practiced clipping techniques and spoke further about setting anchors before giving A Week With Pete a go.

Eric looked solid with his climbing, rope management, and anchoring.

With a little more time in the day, we hiked up to Dirtigo where we climbed, led, and rappelled, broadening the skill set.

A lap on the Wimpy Gilman was a fine finish to the afternoon.
