/ Gritstone midges
Hard to focus on a complex, bold, slightly dirty crux, onsight, especially with a belayer struggling to maintain full attention...I bottled and we went to the pub for the BMC meeting.
Sounds like they just wanted the crag to themselves. Did they have wee 5.10's on? ;O)
Were you in time for the Zumba ?
Missed it! Midges and zumba in one night sounds like a nightmare!!
...no I guess being eaten alive on a sweaty day, whilst contemplating a slightly dirty and difficult to reverse 4cish looking move, with gear and ledges to hit beneath my feet and 20m of rope below me to stretch and a midge afflicted belayer, distracted me.
Gritstone midges ....
How do they fly?
