No pictures, but on Saturday Mat came to visit and we went out to Bamford Edge for the afternoon. Despite it being grey and overcast we had a good afternoons climbing at Gunbuttress and Porthole Buttress. I led Randy's Wall (** HVS 5a), Gunpowder Crack (** VS 5b) and Plimsoll Line (HVS 5b) whilst Mat led Shadow Wall (* VS 4c) and Moglichkeit (HS 4b). A little bouldering and then home via The Vine for dinner.

Went out to Burbage North last night for the first time since I got back in the country. It was a gorgeous evening with clear blue skies and lovely and warm.

Warmed up by leading Greeny Crack (VS 4b), then followed Dan up Rose Flake (VS 4b)

There's a hold up there somewhere!

All in all a wonderful

Del led Amazon Crack (HS 4b), before I romped up Right Fin (HVS 5a). Dan finished the evening off by leading Long Tall Sally (E1 5b)

Long Tall Dan.

Then we watched the sun setting before heading home.

I had a nice weekend in Font over the bank holiday with some old friends I've not seen in a number of years. The weather was fairly kind and we got out every day and had a really good time. Unfortunately I was too busy climbing to take any pictures, but I'm being sent some and will add them in due course.

Last night we went out to Wharncliffe for an evenings climbing. Here's a shot of Del leading the *** Tower Face (HS 4b).

Come here hold...

Went out to Stanage on Wednesday for a climb and only realised when racking up that I'd forgotten my climbing shoes!!!

Still I led the delicate Fairy Steps (** VS 4a) which was great fun and a route I've had my eye on since getting back from Australia.

I then took pics of Dan leading and Rob following on Tower Wall (*** HVS 5a).

This route looks excellent, and I'm going to go back and try the Direct in the near future.

Off to Font this evening for a long weekend, can't wait!

Whats in there?


Sunshine's out of his arse...
