Pete and Tish decided to follow us up the route as the weather was getting worse, and it turned from a group outing to a race against the elements as the handholds became puddles, the smears became slides and the view disappeared.
All the other climbers were heading down, so we joined them. Back at the cafe in Chapel Stile we just had tea and coffee. No cake. How could we justify it after only one route?…… hardly a Ganley
