Today I took Andy on the first day of his climbing course to Avon Gorge where we climbed The Arete, Original Route and Easy Route at Main Area, A total of 11 pitches of climbing. We were climbing well to the right of the nesting perigrines and although we had made an effort not to disturb them the same could not be said for the crows who buzzed them all day. We got away with the weather with the showers coming in just as we were finishing.
This evening I met with my group who I will be taking to Borneo in a few weeks time. I now have 57 student names to learn!
