How was it for you?


Wednesday night saw the loose collective that is Wednesday night bouldering swell in number to nine. Bothering Caley Crag boulders on another sun dappled evening I think pretty much everyone got something from the session. Hostilities commenced under the wonderfully named Roof of the World with many people finding a way to get up some steep ground with big holds, Ellie seems likely to remember her ascent for a while yet.

I had been looking at the aptly named Smear Arete over the weekend but didn't fancy the landing with a single pad. With another pad thown under it though it was actually pretty straight forward and of top quality as long as you like smearing.
Finally after a few other diversions everyone ended up at the lovely Flapjack boulder trying all kinds of things.  People then  either gaining a smile from padding up  the excellent scoop problem or nashing their teeth trying to stand up in that pocket "just one more time". Stuart seemed more determined than most and a sideways dismount left him with a bruised shoulder as he missed the mat and hit a good size lump of grit.  Leeds import Andy then proving he didn't need his fingers to do it just good foot work and belief.

So a couple of problems that snook onto my list at the weekend are now ticked off and  after  many false starts I finally get some progress. More importantly it was a lovely evening.
