Topic - Leashes or Leashless for First Time Winter Climb??

Nath - on 11 Dec 2012
I made the transition to Leashless a while ago, but I started and climbed for a number of years with Leashes.

I'm taking someone on their first foray into Winter, Grade II I would think - certainly no harder.

Would you advise missing out "Leashes" and going straight for the Leashless experience or would you suggest a couple of routes with Leashes first?

I am wondering whether the perceived support to the wrists would make a first timer feel a little more secure - possible stop them tiring?

I can borrow pair of Axes that they can use that can be set with/without.

Regards

Nat
