|Ben on Trapeze Direct VS 4C|
The weather looked great in the Peak District so I headed to Froggatt Edge for a days climbing with Ben. I've not climbed on gritstone for over a year and not been to Froggatt for ages so it was great to get back.
|Terrace Crack VS 4B|
We managed to climb 8 routes between HS and HVS today, which was pretty good. Although short routes, I'd forgotten how tiring grit can be, and my arms and shoulders feel like they have had a great workout after today.
|Tody's Wall, at full stretch, if only I was an inch taller...|
|The hard bit (I'm telling myself its just like hopping over a wall!)|
|The fine upper crack of Tody's Wall|
|Me top roping the same route in 1995 (My early years learning to climb)!!!!|
All of the routes were fun, but my highlight was Tody's Wall, a great HVS 5a that requires commitment to get over the lip (it took me awhile!). The weather forecast was also on the ball, being sunny all day and at times a little too hot. Gritstone rules.....
