We went to Clifton today. Emma led a few severes and I pottered about on the 3 Star VS Dirl Chimney and a 3 Star E1 Wall Street. The crag is in a nice setting with veiws out to the solway coast, but the climbs are short which takes something away from them. I would make a trip down to Meikle Ross again but would would not drive from Edinburgh to just got to Clifton.

We stopped off at Back Bowden to have a play on the sandstone and do some trad. A nice cool start to the day was perfect as all 3 of us ticked the classic Outward Bound. Neil then did the direct finish to the Tube, whilst I opted for the classic version. A nice change from the bolts.

I.ve been down at Gordale for the last 4 days doing a bit of sports climbing with some friends. The weather has been excellent, which meant that temperature at the crag was perfect in the shade. It's my first time clipping bolts in Yorkshire and I was pleasently suprised by the quality of the climbing. Overall the trip was a success, with a few good ticks made.
