Early Season Pass Mileage

Simon Lake gunning up the first pitch of Cemetry Gates, Dinas Cromlech

Well, after what seems like an age of not being able to climb outside on rock, the weather has truly outdone itself the last week. As such I have been out and about mainly in the pass. Yesterday, I managed Cemetry Gates, Cenotaph Corner and Sabre Cut. Sabre Cut was a route that I had never done before, mainly because my first route at the crag was Cenotaph Corner, so I missed out on many of the classic VS, of which the top pitch of this was one of teh finest examples of a classic VS.


Today, again with Lakey, we headed to the Crouchan, meaning if I managed to get to maybe Craig Ddu tomorrow, I will have ticked all the sunny side, although I am thinking about the thumb, as I have never been there and nor has llion.

Again we went for the easy ride at the Crouchan and climbed, Karwendel Wall, Wind, Slape Direct and Spectre. So another host of classic routes under our belt, more sunburn and big smiles alround. Really good to get out moving on the rock and just moving quickly and efficiently over some nice terrain.
