SRT Practice, Smallcleugh Mine (05/03/22).

Back to Smallcleugh Trip Index

After the Brownley Hill round trip a few months ago I felt that I needed some SRT practice, I did everything that I needed to do on the trip, but it wasn't as smooth as it used to be. So we headed into Smallcleugh to have a play on a couple of low level pitches practicing rigging, adjusting SRT kit for optimum operation, passing re-belays and derigging.

The pitches where only short ones of around 4m, but it was all to do with practicing the techniques and refining them. The difference between when I started out and 4 hours later was quite outstanding in the fluidity of it all.
