Mud Sweat and Tears at the Roaches

Hard course grit for change, a pleasent reminder how good the roaches were, perfect for a late night summer session or warm dry winter hardcore projects. Avoiding the Aptly named Boggy 'Spring Boulders" (a must after a dry spell) we got straight on the classics on the lower tier, taking warm ups and ticking some quality classic lines.

Then to the very wet and muddy Doxey's Pool, behind the skyline area, taking a splash down in the water on Staffordshire Flyer, got soaked! most starts were sodden and 5:10 don't make wellies, so back down to the upper tier just as the sun broke the clouds.

Good balance or maybe asleep?

Plenty to do at any grade, a brilliant day out, a mystical place, looks like spring is here at last!!!!
