Shaftoe Bouldering - 30th Dec 2008

It was the last chance of the year for some bouldering action, after the aborted mission of the previous Sunday!! Decided to try for a 'short session' at Shaftoe. The day felt cold and damp but at least it wasn't raining. Ali (aka The Doc) and I met up with the rest of the squad at the crag, the walk in had been wet and muddy so I wasn't convinced this was going to be worth it. After eventually getting over the screaming hot aches we all got down to some semi hard pullin'! The 'short session' lasted over four hours, the numb toes much longer!!

Ali pulling those slopers!

Jimmy 'tongue-ing' for glory.

Broon 'in the mix'

Sunday at the Wall

After a hopeful start the rain caught up with us and the planned Shaftoe session was hastily changed to a quickie at Climb Newcastle. Finished off all but two problems of the new blue circuit (brilliant range of problems) which was quite pleasing. Looking forward to getting out on the rock (or the ice) over the next few days, weather permitting!!
