Leading on limestone

Continuing good weather and conditions this week allowed us to explore the techniques of lead climbing, looking at gear placements, creating anchors belaying from above, and rope management - the 'head game' aspect of lead climbing was also discussed - fortunately without too much 'psychobabble' ! - options were also discussed for occassions when things start to go wrong !
Thanks to Den and Riccardo for their enthusiasm and easy company.
Also heard on the grapevine that the new Symonds Yat guide is with the printers - shouldn't be too long now - I'm looking forward to it !
