|John loving the friction climbing|
Today was our first day at the Peak and it started with a blue sky morning in Sheffield. When we arrived at Stanage there was a wee bit of cloud but that cleared pretty quickly to leave a clear cold crisp day. We had a great time climbing some of the classics with doing minimal walking. Friction in these conditions is fantastic, John had never climbed on the grit and was picking it up pretty well. We worked our way from right to left and climbed Crack and Corner (HVD 4b), Manchester Buttress (HS 4b), Gargoyle Buttress (VS 4b), Black Hawk Hell Crack (S 4a), Flying Buttress (HVD) and Queersville (HVS 5a). A brilliant day at Stanage, can't with for more tomorrow.
