Another day at Stanage. Was good to get out with Gareth and climb some cracking mud grade climbs. Led 3 VS and 1 HVS and followed Gareth up 4 more.
It’s very rare that climbing cones second to anything else but today the simple joy of being out in the sun surpassed it. We toiled through snow, frost and thick fog to emerge into this…
It was Amy’s first time bouldering outdoors so we hit the big grades (f3+) hard. Amy was awesome and still finds my inability to climb slabs and mantle annoying, I made her climb overhangs as revenge. She did really help me on my technique though and I loved getting back into the feel of bouldering.
It was so warm we were down to tshirts and still sweating. the ‘feels like’ temperature must have been around 20.
Anyway, awesome to get out, beautiful scenery and two happy climbers
