Bridestones Revisited

The High Bridestones
A sunny day at last! with snow on its way tomorrow, a quick trip to the North York Moors, to the soft sandy Bridestones, probably the closest rock to home!

The quality of the rock can be dubious but there are a lot of quality lines, with a circuit of over a hundred problems from Font 3 to Font 6c and some nice eliminates on the high Bridestone buttresses, definatley a great family venue, hours of fun for the kids.

A good four hours, two chicken burgers, tikka kebab and ribs (Morrisons in Malton mmmm) we had ran out of steam, it was also getting dark!

Best of the day: 
1: The Smaller overhang on the Second pinnacle both sides and direct Font 6a
Rob cranking the direct line
2: The Amazing Pepper Pot is a must, Master, Mr and Mrs Pepper Pot, all around Font 6b but not quite sure were to follow the original lines set by Griff Griffith 1995 (don't tip it over!)

3: Big Dogs Cock on the Isolated Pinnacle, a highball  Font 5+

4: A nice little problem on the 2nd High Buttress, using a mono and an undercut sandy sloper, heading direct to the sapling, SS Font 6c
