Topic - Who said trad climbing is dying...

Misha - on 10 Jun 2013
The earlier thread about trad climbing dying off came to mind when we were at Cloggy on Saturday. There were 25+ teams there and a steady stream of people going up Great Wall all day long - so much so that one team didn't manage to get on it at all and had to get up there again on Sunday morning! There was also a bit of a traffic jam on White Slab at one point when one leader took a little while on the crux. Sunday was less busy but there were still at least a dozen teams on the crag. Great to see so many people out and lots of routes being climbed. We figured there would be a few other people there but weren't expecting quite so many! The conditions were great - the rock was dry, it was almost warm even in the shade and hardly a breath of wind. The only annoying thing was the noise from the train! I know a single popular weekend isn't evidence of some kind of resurgence in trad climbing but it's great to see nonetheless.
