|Sunny Stoupe and its massive pottential|
The numbers of people climbing on the Moors increase. The desperate hands clasp in greater numbers. So what happened this year?
|I can still feel the cold in this picture. Spring ey, feels long ago..|
|New routing at its best - onsight on Stuck In The Sky (E7 6c**)|
It was then that Pyskovsky's sequins was climbed, bringing Danby once again to national attentions. People are getting more and more interested in Danby, but it's still yet to really see a lot of visits. It doesn't even look like it's going to be that long until it's fully worked out with about another 10 lines between E5 and H11. Exciting stuff! The handful of stuff at the lower end of this range didn't quite get climbed, which was a little disappointing and surprising.
|New Moves, Ferrier flys high.|
Straight after this was the flirtation with the coast. It was almost as if all the pain of the Moors had to be compensated for by a trip to the seaside. A few things got climbed, which has helped to further establish the coast as a prime resort for the mid-extreme climber. Panda to the Masses (E6 6c) was a particular gem, born out of a rock structure that looked a bit naff. Surprises like this are really pleasant.
After the recoup it was back into the heart of the Moors, with Tranmire exploding in a maze of opportunity. New lines on brill rock bubbled up left, right and centre, giving that spectacular climax that so often happens towardes the end of the Moors season.
|It's become a cliche now, but oway, how did I never find this?|
