At 9am it was gloriously sunny, at 9.30 it was getting decidedly over-cast, at 10am it was quite cool. We decided a strategic journey south would give us a better opportunity to do some climbing…
Earlier in the year (see this) we had tried Warton quarry, but the bird (Peregrine) ban prevented climbing. We checked the BMC site to ensure that we would not be disappointed this time and then headed off down to Warton. Apart from a few people walking their dogs and some noisy jackdaws we had the place to ourselves!
Pete led Deceptive Bends, which had a few bends up a fantastic slab, with one very scary moment when a hold came flying off just as Pete was pulling on it!

I led The Real World, which was just brilliant, apart from the very scrappy and loose first pitch which I made Pete lead.
