Lawrencefield – Oh my climbing god! It didn’t rain.

Shock… horror, after 7 cancelled evening or damp squibs we actually got a decent night out climbing. A few people had snatched a climb here or there at Windgather, Birchen and Roaches but Tuesday was dry, warm and delightful.  BuxtonMC sure made the best of it with 18-20 club members out climbing (+3 dogs).

Out in Force on Gingerbread slabs, all BuxtonMC

Virtually everything on Gingerbread slab was climbed.

 

3 tree climb and pulpit groove saw some action too.

Of note tonight was Chris C leading for the first time this year, Gemma climbing on a top rope placing gear as practice and David R (seconded by Chris C) climbing into the darkness on Lawrencefield Ordinary.

The main highlight though was just the number of people out enjoying the sun and the number of routes that got climbed… a cracking night out for all. The walking contingent walked from Surprise view to Longshaw estate and back taking in a Owler Tor and Padley Gorge… not too warm but dry, clear and thoroughly enjoyable. Long may the kind weather continue
