These skills will be covered on flat ground with belayer and climber mimicking rope tension:

bump.
Several slots open.
Might be too soggy for you to climb outdoors, anyway...

Light turnout - folks that thought they could attend were reminded of holiday plans by their significant others.
If I get two more confirmed by noon I will run it, otherwise I'll need to re-schedule.
