We had a long planned family trip to Swanage, but that wasn’t going to mean no climbing. Quite the contrary we took my brother-in-law and my niece (Emily) and nephew (Charlie) out for some cragging.
Before they arrived Fiona and I headed down to Subliminal and managed to climb Greasy Chimney (Vdiff) very “atmospheric” start – Fiona declared it just plain scary. Followed by the easiest route out High Street – no grade pushing – Fi wasn’t having a good day & I’m suffering from climbers (aka tennis) elbow .
After that we met up with the Graham, Charlie & Emily for some fun sport climbing at Hedbury quarry were we sent them all up the Grade 1 (yes thats grade ONE) sport route “Very Ordinary Route” followed by the slightly harder Grade 2 Another Contribution. Everyone managed to top out both climbs before the light started to fail and we headed back for tea and medals.
