Great Scot

December 3rd
Frosty morning
Cloudless sky, no wind, inside is out, outside is ON!
Dazzling drive across to;
Scot Crags, Scugdale
A selection of prime routes knocked off by today's hardy team.
Crag a bit gritty after all the rain, must remember the mat next time.

All pixels original

 Impossibly Pinging!

NB taking Pets Corner on the lead

AT prospecting for holds on Hadrian's Wall

Catching the last of the rays

Frost holding fast in the valley

Sublime end to a fantastic day on the crag

Esoterica ticking

Oct 2nd

The Indian Summer hangs on just one more day.

BP taking it easy having blown some sort of gasket - but still robust enough to pursue the Brimham Mission - having ticked most of the obvious stuff now having to hunt down the esoterica - so a bit of a mixed bagging day - some routes top roped given no gear, no mats, no desire to have supper on the ward..... Lunatic Rib left for the eponymous types....

Great Slab gear fest

BP makes it all add up on Square Root

AT powers up Cubic Corner

BP looking a bit discombobulated, having had all his pixels transported from another time and place.

Perry in a Peerless position

Appiewand follows the clean line up the crack and scoop above the bloke on belay

Two very worthwhile routes

Just enough gear

BP gets on up The Belfry

Moves right at the big break, pretty tenuous

Direct finish over the improbable bulge - yikes!
