E1

Finally. It’s taken 20months of leading trad to climb my first ‘proper’ E1 yesterday. Not just a glorified 6m boulder route. It’s called Pinnacle Arete at Wharncliffe. You can check it here

The same day also top roped an E2 that I’m fairly certain I’d rather do over my boulder mat than with a rope on as I couldn’t find a placement on it.

And I spent my day with these two cracking people

O and find this little fellow while soloing. I nearly fell off!

It’s gritstone season, welcome to my backyard! If in the Sheffield area come say hi and share a nip of the strong stuff at a crag

Peace x

One thought on “E1”

  1. Is that a bat? If so, how lovely. Didn’t it wake up though? I love finding pretty wild flowers in cracks on my limestone climbs šŸ™‚

    BTW – not much to report myself as my hip is really misbehaving but I actually managed another 6a at the climbing wall the other day and then my first 6a+ šŸ™‚
