Ian wanted to have an adventure lined up for today and suggested we went to my secret crag to grab a new route. So, after getting Anna and Ian to sign in blood that they’d keep it’s location a secret we headed off.
While the sun was shining it had seemed like a good plan, until we got there and realised just how bloody cold the wicked easterly wind was making it!
Sorry, only the one picture – can’t give too much away.
I had to back off my planned line with numb fingers (I’m hoping it will make a reasonable HVS – maybe a bit easier, maybe a bit harder – won’t really know till it’s done ). But, Ian completed his steep new line to the right and Laetitia did a nice easy route (in her big boots) on the left hand side . Not bad for such a cold day. As it was dry, we’d certainly have climbed more if we’d gone to Shepherds, but I think we had the adventure Ian wanted!
Now we just need Ian and Laetitia to let us know what grade they thought the routes were and what they are gonna name them…
