4 rather cold but very happy climbers rocked up at Eastby last night for the first outdoor meet of the season.
Two teams managed six routes including Mantelshelves (HS 3c), a harsh re-introduction back into gritstone climbing after a winter of plastic! The classic Eastby Buttress (gotta be done) and the (in my opinion) best gritstone route ever – Piller Rib (VS 4c).
The sun shone bright until it disappeared behind the crag and we descended with smiles! 🙂
