More Success

With some great grit conditions over the Xmas period everyone was looking to get there projects done. On Sunday again the conditions in the eastern peak were spot on, so a small team headed out. First on the the list was Gorilla warfare (Fnt 7a) at Curbar. Sie, after success on Too Drunk at the Roaches just after xmas (Fnt7a, his first) got his second. Steph and Adam both got really close but not quite.

Also Robin managed to do Early Door (Fnt 7a+).

Next they moved on to Gardoms North with another score to settle and again Sie managed to do Marks Roof Left Hand (Fnt 7a). Nice One Sie , all that hard work training at Wolf Mountain has payed off.

Today Tim Palmer, a Wolf Mountain regular and strong man, finally had success on a Problem he has been trying for on and off for five years. With the low temperature's and dry conditions, it was a perfect time to complete The Inertia Reel Traverse (Fnt 8a+) , at the Lower Tier at the Roaches. It was impressive to watch as he made it look easy and finish with a scream and a huge SMILE.Nice one Tim.
Here is a Photo Movie of the First Half, 20 moves done, 20 moves to go.

On a lesser note I managed today to finally do Clever Skin (Fnt 7a) , at Baldstones.
