Mild weather so Wydcliffe
Mild weather at the end of the week so Sarah-Jane and I went sport climbing at Wyndcliffe Quarry in The Wye Valley. Gordon Jenkin was on hand to show us the new stuff. My pic is of Anna from a previous trip.

Bitterly cold at The Yat
Tuesday and Anna and I decided to give the warmth of the indoors a miss and climb at Symonds Yat in The Forest of Dean. It was very cold and the rock was wet in places but we struggled up one climb before retiring to the top of the cliff to work on some SPA set-ups.

Symonds Yat cold & wet!
Despite the cold, damp weather I enjoyed working for The Leadership Trust this week. It was good to catch up with fellow instructors and the delegates were keen. We went to Symonds Yat in The Forest of Dean Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday.

Young instructor Oli wanted a Single Pitch Award (SPA) refresher and so with a dodgy weather forecast I took him to Wintours Leap in The Wye Valley. It didn't rain all day and we even managed a damp E1 to finish off the day.
Oli did well and my picture shows him setting up on 'The Broadwalk'...

Wyncliffe sport & trad climbing
Despite the recent rain Alex and I had a great day out climbing at Wyndcliffe in The Wye Valley. We started at Wyndcliffe Quarry where we climbed 5 sport climbs before moving up to The Right Hand Cliff for a wetish E1. My photo, taken with phone, shows Alex on a 6a+.
