Family Day at Wimberry

It was family day today, so we made a trip out to Wimberry to enjoy the sunshine, extreme pramming and some bouldering. It was a little warm on the sunny faces, but I still managed to get about 20 problems done ranging from font 3-7b. I have never been to Wimberry before, so was quite happy to start at the lowest boulder and try and tick all the problems (with the exception of the nails ones) before moving on.

The problems on the Sugar Loaf were all quite nice, with Chips Sit Start font 7a and Local Hero font 6b+ being 2 of the best. Next up was the Sloping Top Boulder. It was a little too warm to finish Slap Happy font 6c/+, but Fat Slapper Sit start font 7a made up for it. We finished our day on the Tank Boulder. There were some nice problems on here to. Elephant's Slab font 6c and the Sit Start Font 7b being very good, Think Tank font 6b+ was no disappointment either.
