    Well what can I say, about a fantastic day’s
    Climbing on Grey Crag. The conditions were
    near perfect.
    We all meet up at Gatesgarth farm at 0900hrs
    to pair up who we were climbing with, ropes, racks etc.
    The walk into Grey Crag takes about 1.5hrs to 2hrs up
    A high mountain path to the foot of Harrow Buttress, the
    Gearing up point.
    From there we began to go our ways, to our first
    To name but a few: Harrow Buttress, Chockstone Ridge,
    Oxford & Cambridge Direct, Oxford & Cambridge Ordinary Route,
    Mitre Buttress Direct, Return with a vengeance,
    Slabs Ordinary Route and Rib & Wall.

    Around 1730 hrs ish we began our decent back
    to Gatesgarth farm. From there the Pub was
    Calling to a few, for a welcoming Beer or two.

    Well thats the end of a great day on the hill climbing.
    We all look forward to a fantastic Summer, and more
    Adventures to come.
