Malham and Kilnsey

The last two day's Dave and I have been playing on some steep Yorkshire limestone. Yesterday we climbed at Malham Cove which most people know from their geography field trip! We were there for the climbing instead of the educational factor. Dave knows the crag very well which is handy as he forgot his guidebook, but we went on and climbed a 7a, 7a+, 7b and then another 7a+. By the end of this we were both pretty tired so we retired to the bar.

Day two we went to Kilnsey. A crag I have never been to but one Dave knows very well. We were still tired from the day before so we started on a 6c+, then 3 7a+'s led on to aching forearms! Lots of other climbers out today, they all seemed to be locals and all climbing around 8a-8c!
