Bouldering at Thorn Crag

Bouldering at Thorn Crag, Trough of Bowland,  21st October. 2012.

Photos and report from ChrisM:

A perfect, crisp, bright Autumn day. Immaculate grit boulders with quality problems. Sunshine that was aesthetically ideal but chilly enough for those slopers to stick. The sage wisdom of Will enabled some serious grade pushing in this stunning bleak landscape. Bouldering Heaven really. As you can tell, I quite enjoyed it.

Stanage 2012.

DerekH was unable to take the lead in this event due to sudden swollen knee problems. The meet was taken over by StephenS who changed the venue to Stanage Edge. The climbing was mainly V. Diffs near the Robin Hood area in perfect weather. There was lots of tuition on hand for making main belays, protecting climbs on route and abseiling. Most of the climbs were top roped with encouragement and no doubt rib tickling criticism from participants.
