Too Hot for Grit

Yesterday I met up with James and Ieuan and went to Widdop hoping to find some shade. Despite finding a bit of shade, the temperature was a little too high to strap one on. However, I thought I would give a steep, sloppy arete climb a go. After much chalking up and brushing a I went, I had to reverse down and admit defeat to the heat. We salvaged the day with a little bouldering, but grit season is over.

Today I was on my own again, so I went to Heptonstall to do a few laps on Red wall. After 8 routes and the sun hitting the wall I bailed. A production morning.
