Windgather 2010

Sunday 25th April

The beginners' meet was attended by about eighteen people. A variety of routes from Diff. to VS were climbed in a variety of styles. As is usual at Windgather, although the climbing itself is very pleasant, belays at the top always require some ingenuity.

The weather definitely favoured those keen enough to be up early. Although it was warm and bright for much of the morning, the clouds looked increasingly menacing and eventually, a little after 2pm, it started raining. A swift retreat to the cars resulted in a rendezvous at the Bull's Head in Kettleshume before the journey home.
