an awful lot of hard work to get to holds you can reach from standing.

Third 'session' the last 2 i should have sent it but the wind recently has been so bad in the rift that i didn't want to take my jacket off. Today was pretty still and it went! Pretty pleased as first 7 on yorkshire grit for a while - looks very unassuming but the climbing is really top quality!

last prob of the day just as it got cool enough to do it. Quality day at the cliff, best new tick probably the R-L traverse under wall of horrors.
