Uphill Climbing

Today I was working at Uphill Quarry with a group from Abbey School in Reading. They have their own qualified Climbing Instructor (Rich) who works full time at the school and he has run a number of indoor sessions for the girls to learn belaying and movement on walls. Today he brought them down to Uphill Quarry so they got to climb outside and I was there was help out. To be fair though they were very good at tying on and belaying so it was a stand back supervisory role for me today. Rich led one of the more experienced students up Uphill Corner HS 4a to give her the chance of seconding a route. The day ended with a number of students abseiling before stripping the ropes down and getting to the bus about 10 minutes before it went dark.
