Yesterday we came down to Sheffield to see friends in the afternoon. To my surprise the weather was improving and the road etc drying fast. I decided to go and have a quick boulder at Burbage North and look at Submergence 7c. It has been on my list for a while, so I was hoping it was dry. The problem was dry, but the pool under the arete problem was inconvenient. I strategically place the mats and got on it. I cruised through to the crux move first go, then hit a wall. It took a fair few attempts to find the best way to the slot. Even then it was very hit and miss. As my skin was sore from the previous day, I just kept trying from the start hoping I would hit on an attempt. This finally happened as the sun disappeared and conditions improved a touch. All that was left was the shallow water solo up the arete.
