Spofforth Pinnacles

So the Skye post hasn’t gone up yet because I don’t know how to word it. Needless to say I’ve gone back to bouldering in a big way and that’s meant searching out some ‘new rock. I found a little crag on 27 crags app called Spofforth  Pinnacles and it looked pretty good. 

I was not however impressed on first sight….there should be rocks here….

However just over the hill I found something like a mini gritstone font. A field full of boulders and some fairly big ones at that 

I only managed to get 11 problems done as my skin was weak from the previous night but they were high quality on awesome sharp unpolished grit. And I was the only person there. I guess this is the bonus of climbing somewhere not in the guides.

Fantastic evening. Good grades from 3 to 6a+ couldn’t have enjoyed it more

This was helped by a beautiful bit of weather!
