It can’t be true, the second bank holiday of the rock climbing season proper and it’s nice weather again! The gods must be smiling on climbers for a change!
Sunny, but with the bitingly cold wind, I nearly whimped out on to the VS (Whit’s End) as I couldn’t feel my finger tips. However, a rest and a warm up in the sun shine pushed me on with the Direct (E1). What a great route. The crux overhang seemed easy – hooray – I must have got that one right. I had wanted to do Spring Bank (E2) too, but that has even smaller holds and with cold fingers… Maybe next time.
