A Bit of Traddin'

After all the travelling in the minibus last week, I was not overly keen to drive to the Peak this morning. Mhairi was up for improving her trad climbing, and there is more than enough locally to keep you busy. Is was not too warm when we started off a Heptonstall, managing a rapid ascent of Main Line VS 4c*, before Mhairi cruised a Thin Red Line E2 5b***. It had warmed too much to get the best out of the day there, so we moved over to the Roost. I was not feeling on form today so climbed Chip and Pin and the Indirect Start as well both E5 6a***. Mhairi had not led E5 before, and Chip and Pin is a great starter. After an awesome onsight attempt, Mhairi was a little spent and didn't manage to tick the route today.

We will be back tomorrow.
