Had a skeg at some good lines-plenty to return to. May even don a harness to have a go at some of Franco and Dave's routes (shock horror-says the wife!).
Sit Start to a rising arete
Woke up early Sunday and dashed off in the morning light to investigate further round the Brow. Bumped into some old friends from the Highlands!
Found a nice overhanging block with spectacular views across to Robin Hood's Bay.
We headed on to Rosedale keen to check out some blocks down in the valley (Any excuse to get a visit to the Lion Inn!)

Working a hard sit start to a project - traverse along a band of ironstone nodules the up to small crimps
On the south side of the Lion Boulder, on a sunny afternoon break between the showers. This one has a mane of heather growing on top (Nothing to do with the pub!?).
Project - an erstwhile effort, but didn't make it to the top
The problem 'Beer' 6b+* a great drink beloved by Jason and Steve
Rosedale Monologue F6b**
On from here to the Rosedale Monolith it had a central project on curved sloping rails (Albert and the Lion?) was attempted initially, then a top-out was achieved on the arete (Rosedale Monologue).
