05.07.14 - North Buttress with Simon and Paul

Today Paul, Simon and I headed to the Buachaille to go over some ropework and the principles of multipitch climbing.  We covered leader placed protection and its removal, anchor/stance selection, belays and direct belay options as well as how to use and safely release a guide plate under load.  It was also a great opportunity to get the guys climbing in their B2 boots ahead of their trip to Chamonix.  Another great day on the Buachaille!
