Spring Climbing

My climbing trips this Spring have had cold winds, some bright sun and (thankfully) no rain.  This has given me the chance to really get back into climbing on rock and to do some great climbs.  It feels like I’ve warmed up for the rest of my climbing year.

    1. I wouldn’t say that. Gritstone is a wonderful rock to climb, but it does take a little getting used to. Overhangs can be challenge. Thankfully, the overhang on Gargoyle Flake has some really nice, positive handholds.

  1. Good start to the season. Keep it up.
    We seem to have had a lot of rain and its been cold and windy. And I’m away to much. Excuses.Excuses.
    Thankfully I have Craig y Longridge within 5 mins of home – so keeping fit.

    1. Thanks. I got lucky with the weather (which is a nice change, as I’m normally unlucky with the weather).

      It’s great that you’ve got somewhere so close by to climb. One of the big disadvantages of being a London-based climber is how far you have to travel to climb on real rock.

      I hope the rest of your climbing season is drier and you manage to get the climbing in.

      Best wishes,
