A Bit of Bouldering

Elliot sending Mouthful of Crystals
Elliot and I went up to the Bridestones today to see if we could still boulder after a fair few routes lately.  We went into the Bruiser area and warmed up some nice easy problems.  The best tick in this area was Mouth Full of Crystals V5**.  Once graded V7, but a crucial hold has improved over the years.  We moved up to have a bash at Jerry's Arete V9, but I could only make it to within one hold for finishing.  A little gutted, we ticked off the small smart wall.

Local Interest Only
Elliot trying hard
Setting up for the crux pull
A short drive down the road took us to Mytholm Steep Quarry for Elliot to try Local Interest Only V7.  I showed the way, and Elliot made it to within one move, but frustration was getting the better of him on the thin crux finish.

Another short drive to the Hidden Boulder, but we were both bollocked to make the most of it.
