The very first experience with Southampton University Mountaineering Club. A freshers meet, where all the new club members have an amazing opportunity to learn how to climb. Olds dedicate their time to teach the freshers. 2 days of climbing in a Peak District national park. My very first attempt to do some traditional climbing, which is very popular here in UK. Leading for the first time and realizing that it is not only the strength and skills or technique that you need, but also thinking. What a great sport/hobby it is! Check out some photos from this weekend.
