The Kalymnos Crew are back in Blighty and raring to team up again..... having overdosed on all that sun soaked jug festooned limestone what could be better than an afternoon on the completely dissimilar sandstone at:-
Scot Crags - Scugdale
With 3 out of 5 members first timers at this premium NYM venue there was plenty to get
on stuck into. At least the warm sunny weather is familiar, if nothing else......
Starting out on Razor Rib and Beta,
a pair of surprisingly technical VDiffs
Gamma (almost Severe and actually 4a)
Mrs P gets aquainted with the lack of any useful looking holds
JC deploys a choice selection of expressive language on the first contact with this weird sandstone s***
Mr P at the sharp end on Razor Rib
Smooth moving on his 435th ascent of this stubbly chunk of crag
JC feels the faith beginning to build with some tidy padding up the pleasant friction moves on Beta (VD)
Nice shaping on the same route
SP gets the footwork sorted on Saint's Wall (S4a)
Like it so much got it repeated it there and then
BC woofs it up Pups Climb
HS 4b **
Get that foot up there!
Pet's Corner (right) will have to wait till next time.
After an extended sequence of mincing about and some useful interventions from BP, AT finally gets the right shape for making the moves up Pingers (VS 5a)
Get on up there!
Plenty to come back for
