The Numbers hits Bridies!

Pete (the Numbers) came across from York with the aim of going to Heptonstall for a specific route.  Unfortunately, the overnight rain ruined that option.  This took us up to the Bridestones.  Pete had never climbed here, I am still trying to get some mileage under my belt for my finger, so it was a great option.

We cruised around a whole host of problems from V2 to V7, starting at the Brother boulder and finishing on the Cheeseblock.  We deliberately did a lot of problems that are not Pete's style, and he was lovin' it.  The highlight for me was Pete flashing Smart and Smarter.  Both V4 and tricky, these see off many a good climber.

The wind had taken it's toll, so we popped down to Woodhouse Scar on the way back to the train station.  Pete swiftly dispatched, Bisto HVS 5b**, Fairy Steps HVS 5b* and Twin Cracks VS 4b* which proved to be the perfect warm down.

A good day and off for coffee.
