Getting on the sharp end

With a spell of good weather I have been able to teach some lead climbing down at the wonderful pinnacle area of Reiff.

Reiff offers some amazing rock to learn lead climbing. From slabs to steep overhanging route there is something for everyone. I had the great privilege to introduce a few people to the wonderful world of lead climbing this week.

Also on the cards again is the Reiff Climbing Festival with dates set for the 12th to 15th of October and tickets now on sale, so if you’d like to learn to lead climb, want to have your anchors and belays checked over or you fancy a come and try rock climbing session then check it out.
