Faces in places

The weather's been remarkably good over the past few days and with the clocks going back the other week the nights have remained relatively light until around 9pm. This means that climbing is now replacing the TV as an evening activity.

This evening, after an early tea, we headed to Armathwaite, where the climbing is bordering on amazing. It was just a shame that I wasn't on form. I only completed one route, a severe, called A Big Hand, which starts off beneath some rather amusing carvings (pictured above). I did attempt a VS 4b, Cook's Crack, and a HS 4b, Glenwillie Grooves, but failed miserably. Basically, I need to trust my gear more and go for the moves.

Good lines, stay safe and see you on the wet stuff...
