Peak Weekend

Popped up to The Peak this weekend with most of the team heading to Denali and a few others.  Mainly to get to know each other better and just have some fun climbing the grit in pretty good grit conditions.

It was the first time on grit for some and others the love affair continued. All round good climbing was done by all the stand out being Will dispatching Black Hawk Bastion E3 5c (Stanage Popular), me having a mini adventure on an E1 bold for even grit standards, but eventually getting to the top, then on Sunday at Froggat cleaning Rat Bag E2 5b after I had been rained and hailed off it on a previous attempt.  Charlie overcame some height restrictions and found faith in her own gear to clean Tody's Wall HVS 5a.

Others like Dan, Tommy and Phil, cruised all weekend lapping up the conditions and enjoying the bold varied climbing that can be packed into the short climbs of the grit edges.

The paparazzi was out in force so there should be some great photo's appearing soon and I will steal some for a photo update on here.
