Learning Abseiling skills

Today L practice, and did, a retrievable abseil, including the use of a prussick for self protection. Due to rain we went to Kendal Wall and climbed indoors, this included a 22 metre lead up a steep wall (French 5+ grade) by L.
With the (secretive) backup support of another instructor I took an opportunity to make a surprise fall from an overhanging wall so she could experience (and hold!) a falling lead climber. Apparently the fall was spectacular.
