Yorkshire dales hit
Just got back from a quick trip up to the dales for the weeknd. Camped over at the Gordale site which was much nicer than staying at the shoddy malham campsite. Weather was pretty terrible for august being very windy, wet and abit midgy!! But did get some great climbing in. Had a couple of sessions at gordale ticking two classic UK routes. One being the stunning Supercool 8a+ and the other extreme rock tick Cave route right hand E6 6b. Was pretty psyched to get them both done and great to do some long routes again! Also went over to Kilnsey to find the place packed for a good reason as its so dry. Was just in time to see Mr Lincoln send Dr Crimp 8b+ which was awesome. Good work bud!! I had a few toss efforts on Grooved arete 8a+ and then got it with out to much fuss. Rest of time was spent ticking some easier lines.
Ed's been out in Austria competing in Viena and will give a run down we he gets back.
