/ First day outdoors on real rock
First up was Alison Rib, which was a joy to climb. It almost seemed like it was made specifically to climb. Second and lastly for the day was the Black Slab , it had a stunning backdrop and views to match. We were being followed up the routes by a large group of marines......so no pressure there then!
I'm hooked, just thought I'd share. Now, where's my credit card for all the bits I'll need!?
Nice one! I've introduced a fair few people to climbing and leading on those routes when I've been working down that way.
Bosigran is a stella crag for you first outdoor trip :)
Nice one, glad you had a great day
It should have been Horseshoe really though :-(
