More Grit

Well the conditions have stayed good. After a hard team training weekend i paid a visit to Earl crag and the Hitchin Stone, managed to tick the 8a and flash the 7c+. Back at the main crag i did possibly a new problem although slightly eliminate to the right of Desert Island Arete. Start in the break just left of the jam crack and make a wild slap for the jug in the crack above (obviuosly no crack below that allowed)probably about 7b. With tired arms we finished off on Underworld so that Sutty could get some footage.

Sooty on an excellent V6 at the Hitchin Stone

Yesterday with the new Yorkshire grit guide in hand i headed off to Caley to try Banana Republic 8a after a while i managed to link it to the last hard move ie the stand up crux, another time maybe.
Tomorrow i am off to Switzerland and after having just spoke to Andy Earl i hope it is gonna get a lot colder.
see ya in a week.
