MIA Client Day

Chris jugging up his fixed line.

Today Chris had the opportunity to practice his coaching and client management in preparation for his MIA assessment. Steve & Hazel were keen to get out on the lead again despite the weather. However with perfect timing we arrived at the crag as it stopped raining and were back in Shepherds Cafe by the time it started again. Quayfoot Buttress (VD) in Borrowdale was very greasy but gave an interesting challenge for everyone before a multi pitch abseil back to our bags. A big thank you to Steve & Hazel for their help in making it a very successful day despite some pretty grotty conditions.
