    With the temperature warming up, it was pleasant to be climbing on a shady crag, albeit one that is short on lower grade routes, which concentrated activity on the handful of MVS (possibly upgraded in current guidebooks) lines. There were several ascents of Ambling Ant and Route 2, whilst Pete, Steve and Jonathan made a tour of the crag via BMC 1.

    Once the more amenable options had been exhausted, the teams drifted down to Steel Knotts Bluff where Geraint and Stu were enjoying pleasant but virtually gear-free climbing on this picnic-themed piece of rock. Most of joined in, with all routes receiving some kind of ascent, including solos, and there was general agreement that Cake is very nice!

    We walked out in a lovely sunset and a bunch of the usual suspects finished the evening with light refreshments at the Dog and Gun.

    Attendees were Tina, Ros, Jon, Ann, Steve P, Jonathan, Pete W, Geraint, Stu, Dan W, Dan H-B, Judith and two guests from Croyden Mountaineering Club.
