Sheffield - Awesome Walls Meet

Eight brave souls overcame the one day of winter so-far by heading over the Pennines by Woodhead, as Snake Pass was closed, to savour the delights of Awesome's premiere wall at Sheffield.

We weren't disappointed the magnificent central overhanging /roof section was an eyeful and even more so for Dave, Andy and Tom and who all gave very impressive efforts on it's 6b+ and 6c+ 'easy!' -routes.

As you'd expect plenty on offer at this venue but of note is the feature wall with arm snapping layback crack plus the highly entertaining speed route.
We all had a go and the record went to Tom who's 27secs was very impressive and with a few more practise he'll be getting to close to the world record of 10sec ( search on you tube ).

All in all a grand day out in Yorkshire - roll on Queensferry next month. - J. Armstrong
