Starting to enjoy this..

With weather all over the place it was a last minute decision to head out again.. I decided to head down to Winspit again to clip some bolts, I took George again as he is slowly catching the climbing bug and wanting to get more involved, we arrived at the crag and surprisingly most of the routes were dry, the weather wasn't great with strong winds but still OK to get something done.
We climbed a few lower grade routes that I hadn't been on before that were pretty cool to get the arms warmed up and free the forearms up a little, I wanted to jump on Avenging the Aswells but unfortunately the water running down the face stopped that, I decided to try and go for the onsight on the new 6c put up "First Dazes of summer". The climbing was pretty cool but I was unable to grab the onsight when I fell at the crux section, I had a little play and worked out the moves.. we were running out of time so we had to head off, but I'm pretty sure I will climb this tomorrow if weather is OK and I manage to get out again..

It was good to see George improving from last week and hopefully soon he can try is first lead climb. I didn't get any pictures of the climbing but below are a few shots experimenting with the camera on the walk out

Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are
naught without prudence, and that a momentary negliance may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste; Look well to each step; and from the beginning think what may be the end
