After a 2 week absence from climbing, it was a pleasure to get back into it at such a nice venue.  Llanymynech boasts several ‘Top 50’ climbs in the country, and today I’m with the developer, the man, the myth, the legend, Gary Gibson.  Quite a few routes on Foreigner Wall here have had their hangers removed – ‘rare plants’, or some such twoddle, so we’re here to do some remaining lines, Damn Foreigners, 6a.

Damn Foreigners, 6a

Then the weather crapped out a little.  A very fine rain stole about 2 hours from the day, and after taking our harnesses off (we thought we were done), Gary was showing me some of the other walls (and new line possibilities), the sun came out with a fierceness and dried everything out.  So we get on to Grid Iron Wall, a magnificent 40mtr high solid wall with some brilliant routes on it.  Smack The Juggler, 6b+ to warm up, the very brilliant A Night Torchlight Parade, 6c but now it’s too hot, so we move over to Red Wall and do the nice hard Subterranean Sidewalk, 6c+ (sometimes graded at 7a).  A good day, and if you get chance to check out Gary’s website, there’s a lot of topos and information there.  www.sportsclimbs.co.uk
