Oh, nice… cloud inversion in the valley today” says Matt, as we approach the Main Area of Curbar.  That’s low lying fog to you and I.  ‘Great’, I think.  From England’s wettest winter, we’re probably moving on to our shittiest spring since some hapless rain-spotter starting taking note, <sigh>.

But it wasn’t bad, in fact it was a pretty good day.  Consider that it’s all trad, it’s all hard and it’s grit, I always find muscle-aches the day after grit that I don’t get on limestone.

Carver Wall, VS 5a at Carver Wall was a nice warmer, on to Baron’s Wall, VS 5b and a spot of lunch.  We’re eyeing up Sorrel’s Sorrow HVS 5a over lunch and just about despatch it ok.  We ditch the rope then and boulder a few problems in The Trench.  A good day at a good venue.
