Even more Wainstones

After frustratingly creaking my neck on the toilet looking for the toilet roll?! Had big plans for trying a lot more of the problems on the Wainstones, added to this the wind was building up, I had visions of mats flying all over with chalk bags disappearing in a puff of white across the moor, It turned out no so bad and ended up almost like a meet.
Lisa and Jo enjoyed it so much they both were up for another day out, even caught up with Steve Crowe and Karin to chat about guides and stuff, It's such a nice place and the view is something else, I'm keen to get the topo to the area done soon.
The grades go into the upper 7s with plenty to do in the grades below this, with variations and worthwhile sit starts and no hands allowed to some of the problems, hope to get this done in the next couple of weeks, watch this space.

Lisa loving the bold slabs
No Hands Challenge
The Right Pebble Arete 6b+ (Purely on the arete keeping right) the shorter you are the harder it gets
Steve ready to pop again on a path side problem from Sit
I was a bit gutted a hold fell off, they looked fine after a good inspection, the other holds seem solid, a good bold 6b from sit? topping out to the right, sustained all the way
