Day two of our NW climbing trip and Murdoch and I went to Reiff. I have never been here so we had a wee solo around warming up on some easy routes around the Pinnacle area then tied onto various routes of a 'must do' nature or stuff Murdoch hadn't done. We climbed Westering Home (E1 5b) and Channering Worm (E3 5c). We then went too the Bouldering Cliff and and climbed The Hand Traverse (HVS 5a) and Crack of Desire variation start (E4 6a) which was brilliant but scary at the start! After that we went over to the Stone Pig area and climbed Strongbow (E1 5b) and finished on Clatterbridge (E5 6b)! Absolutely nails route, its like climbing up a finger board and the holds get worse and worse as you move away from the gear. A great performance from Murdoch. Day 2 – very tired with sore arms.
