Evening climbing, Shorts and everything!


Spot the climber!

This week, despite being back at work I was determined to make the most of the sun and longer evenings.

Tuesday night saw Adam and I head to the local crags at Loudoun hill to do battle with a savage HVS route, Pulpit Crack and get back on the E grades with The Belk. Hard to believe it was only 2 weeks ago that the pair of us climbed a very wintery North East Buttress together.

Thursday night saw me take some slightly more extreme measures to get on the rock with a quick blast (within the speed limits of course) down to Shepherds Crag in the Lake District where  Paul and I blasted up 2 Lakes multi pitch classics, Eve and Adam.

Both absolutely excellent climbs and what a fabulous way to spend an evening after work!
