An End To This Affair
Just spent a great couple of days out on the grit. Finn MC was up and psyched to hit all things gritstone!! First hit was up to Robin hoods stride to get on Kaluza Klein E7 6c. After a brief play on it Finn stepped up and went for the lead, slipped and took the ground fall then got staight back on it and sent it next go! Good work! I was struggleing with the left foot rockover so tried the right foot first and it worked. So no excuses and went for it. Luckily I got it that go! Phewwww :) Next...
Today we went up to Curbar Moon buttress to have a crack at the celerbrated END of the AFFAIR E8 6c. Ed was also keen and joined the team! The conditions were minted, blue skye, cold, sunny and just perfect. Sending time!!! After we had all got it sussed on the top rope Finn manned up and stepped on. I was at the bottom ready to hurl myself down the gulley... In true style the man nailed it without a fuss. After that I then sent it and then Ed crushed it for his first E8! A brilliant team effort. Three ascents in less than an hour...awesome!
Bring on more grit I'd say.
