Adam took to things well getting the opportunity to use the rope around spikes and Italian hitches as direct anchors, body belay and place his first gear. At the top of the Ridge we went right round to the 'dark side' of Crowberry Tower (looser and more slippery than anything on the Ridge below)|, topped out on the Tower and abseiled into the Gap for good measure. A good use of a damp day and hopefully a good start to Adam's roped mountaineering career!
