Brilliant - just cannot understand why very few English climbers never to to Fairhead its just "the place" for brilliant trad.
well done Ricky Bell
just got back from second trip there and have to agree. it is such an outstanding place to climb. full on commitment required for most of the routes which just adds to the enjoyment. so many flawless lines up perfect features. can't wait to go back.
i just put a pic in my gallery of ricky on his new route from last saturday - gives a good impression of the scale of the place
I went at the weekend, managed to snatch 4 routes in three days between hail showers!!! Would def go back though, it is superb.
Had a brief chat with Ricky et al, who seemed to be sat in the van for days waiting for something approaching decent conditions, good effort mate.
