Blue Scar

I met up with Ali and a few others today at Blue Scar. This was my first time at the crag, so I was psyched to try one of the classic trad routes. After warming up on a few 6b's on the far ring wing I was ready to have a crack at something a bit spicier. I picked Blue Grit, a bold, pumpy and technical E4 6a on the left wing. After a bouldery start, a reasonable rest is reached, a poor protection arranged. Bold and technical slab/wall climbing takes you to the second break and a good rest, before a straight forward finish, Awesome.
