Bit of a Lull- Autumn And That

Since our day out at Round Crag I haven't been up to that much. I had some resit exams for a bit and then me and Dave headed to the Lakes. We got shut down by a wet Dow Crag and headed for the Slate quarries.

We managed to do all the remaining E4s and retro-bolted E4s on the back wall which was ace, and I then led a corner which I had tried before, which has now been bolted, which goes at F7a+. I remember fiddling to try and get some RPs a while back and ultimately retreating very low down, but with bolts it was pretty pleasant and steady.

After a bit of an epic involving car tyres and hitching we got back to the moors. A couple of days bouldering is about all that has occurred, but I'm interested to get back on the unclimbed routes, maybe try and get on the wall right of Gehenna (E7 6bish) over the next few days.
