We were only with five. And we went to 'the Lost World'; the usual crag for us. I volunteered to lead Taid. Eifion lead Nain. With an uneven number it was relaxed climbing; there was always one person without anything to do. But it shouldn't get too relaxed so I went back to Eifion's car to get a third rope, and had a go at Ffrind. That worked too! But that left only one route on the crag: Zimba. I could remember having had trouble with that one (the previous time I didn't get past the first obstacle) so I didn't want to lead it. But I thought it may be possible to rig it from the top. And everyone who wanted to had climbed Taid so that rope could be re-positioned. I scrambled to the top, got the rope out, found the top of Zimba, and manage to clip the rope in. Then I threw it down. I thought! It snagged. Of course. That had happened before! I can't find it on the blog but it did happen. I think it was Taid I rigged from the top that time. And had to abseil on my belaying device to get the rope out of a tree. And that happened again! But it was OK.
I then tried climbing it. I still struggle with the first bit! Olivia did it too. She did better. Although she saw exactly what I had found difficult about it! Eifion didn't have much difficulty with it. The other ladies weren't keen. So that meant we were done! And rightly so; it was getting late. But a good session!
