Straight Outta Clackeaton

Jams means easy on the injured finger climbing My God Rides a Skateboard

It was back to Honley today with Dan and Huw to try and get some better pics and see how the new text works for the crag.  Dan and Huw warmed up with quick ascents of Triple Bad Acid Test E2 5c** and did the direct My God Rides A Skateboard E4 5c**, which I had climbed before.  Dan and Huw then both made short work of it.  We all then led The Dog's Biscuits E4 5c***, which is alway good fun.  Dan very kindly offered to clean Straight Outta Clackeaton E5 6b**, Which I was very happy to Flash.  Dan put a good effort in, but got stuck committing to the crux which feels a bit bold.

Dan through the crux and cruising to the top

Loving the steep crack
Pulling hard on straight Outta Clackeaton
A quick hit, but well worth it.
