Gardoms Magic

Had a cool session up on Froggatt with Mr Humphris last Friday, and even though the signs looked ominous to begin with it turned out alright and I was able to get on Narcissus while Ben went for Oedipus. Didn't manage to get them done in the end but another route that can be added to the list of things to come back for.

Saturday we all headed to Gardoms in the hope that the classic Dawes E6, Charlotte Rampling would be in good nick along with a couple other things. Got up there and it was totally soaked but we were optimistic that it'd dry so went and did the amazing Suavito F7B+, a well nice bloc which has to be up there with one of my favourite problems for sure.

Once the sun hit the slab of Charlotte it was fine and was able to get it done! YES! Love those moments when you feel totally in there on a route, completely in that zone, focusing on the next move and getting to the top.

It was a case of back to the same old drizzle yesterday but hopefully it'll pick up some this week and we'll be able to get out. Short video below of some end of the day bouldering.
