Me and Kev headed up to Pinnacle Crag and climbed Staircase, then moved onto the last pitch of Pinnacle Ridge (severe) as a nice warm up route, then moved upto Styx Buttress. Hear i lead up one of the finest routes in the glen, Resurrection VS***
Near the top of Resurrection
After this the weather looked to be closing in a little so we decided to head back to the car but en route ran into Lee helping out with an Outdoor Active group, chatted for a while then decided to have a play on Repton Buttress. I soloed Tykes climb (VDiff) while Kev tried out some bouldering problems.
The weather was still holding but we decided to head down anyway but this time we ran into Connor and Jamie on Pinnacle Buttress. We slung a bottom rope down Chalky wall E4 6a and had a bash at it. To my great surprise i managed to finish the route (as far as our rope would allow anyway) although with quite a few rests. Definitely one to work on and try to link up next time.

While the others all had a go i soloed up the 1st pitch of Pinnacle Ridge (severe), then we all packed up and finally managed to run away!
There were also a good number of larger groups out today with Outdoor Active running an intensive SPA training course on Upper Pinnacle and a few Outward groups on Pine Wall Crag and South West Buttress, showing off their shiny new jackets!
Lets play spot the instructor!
A much better day than giving presentations!
