The Cleveland MC have had their annual dinner this weekend, which has resulted in a load of new-routing action down on the coast.

The Smuggler's Terrace has seen most of the focus with a good wodge of routes between Severe and E3 being climbed, many of them with stars, and by a lot of different people (some nearly 80 years old).

There aren't many photos available at the moment, but it seems that some other people, not members of the CMC, have also been out.

Smuggler's is of course home to the classic lines of 'The Tormented Sole' (E7 6b***) and 'Psychosis' (E5 6a***), but there is loads more to do down there at lower grades, so get out and have an explore! Nip into Stoupe Brow as well if you pop by.

I see Chris Woodall has added a new route here. Chris introduced me to rock climbing in 1974. It is great to see he is still active, I would really like to see his log book on here.

I wasn't aware of that. Chris has introduced a lot of people to climbing it seems - long may he continue! He certainly seems to have done a lot.

Chris took me up to Kern Knots crag where I climbed (seconded) my first VS and HVS while on a school trip based at Derwent Hill.
