So two meets into the new calendar and we have a 100% record (shhhhh!)
A new addition to the calendar was a early visit to New Mills. This would not be really possible if it were not for the floodlights illuminating a decent amou t of rock and mostly the bouldering and sports routes on the viaduct pillar.
We had 5 or 6 members plus a person who had planned to pop down and say hello and were even joined by a climber who didnt know we were going to be there but was walking back on his communte from work. He then legged it home and grabbed his kit.
All in all an excellent meet.
The following week was Windgather and to be fair.. it all looked rather doubtful. Even driving through Whaley bridge i was mentally planning a walk in my head, but i got there and it was dry. Andy had been there from 4 and said you could see rain falling all around by not on Windgather.
Admittedly is was cold and we did have flurries of snow but a number of routes were led and even more soloed by the 6 or so climbers there.
A good start to the year… but dont say it out loud!
