Another climbing excursion – maybe Ewe Climb would be a better name for me! The Newman family where pointed in my direction from Jim (nineonesix) since he unfortunately broke his collar bone recently. Hope you recover soon!

The Newman’s arrived with part enthusiasm and part teenager lethargy which soon disappeared (the lethargy bit, that is). There was competition to be first, James got the spot and easily nipped up the route, followed by Guy, then India, leaving Paul to be last.

The four paired up and belayed each other on the rest of the climbs, learning to belay and to trust each other. All four picked up the skills quickly and competently. The afternoon was finished off with a climb to the top and an abseil to the foot of the crag, a good end to a great session.
