Some progress being made into my list this week. Firstly, I checked out Brandrith Crags- part of the Thruscross collection of rocks, and one that fits into the 'esoteric' group. Unfortunately I had two large dogs attached to me by leads, so didn't actually climb anything, but now know where they are, how to walk in, and reckon they are definitely worth a trip. Lots of pleasant scrambling, some highball stuff, and a few boulder problems in there somewhere.
Secondly, both Stu and myself got up Chips at Caley Roadside last night- not the most technical of climbs, but probably the scariest thing I've been up in a while! A good session as well with a few other ticks, but you could almost feel the bracken getting taller by the second.
