Prospective Members: Ian Bennett, Rory Marsden
The forecast was a little marginal but Castle Naze is a super quick drying crag – we were there from 3pm – 8.30pm and in the end we only had a few spots of rain and a short spell of cool wind but other than that it was warm, dry, sunny and relatively calm.
We climbed most of the classic routes between us that evening with Jim having a cracking night leading Keep Arete VS 4b, The Crack VS 4b, Studio HS 4b, The Nithin S 4a, Scoop Face HVS 5a and Nozag VS 4c. Check out the KMC members facebook page for a great photo of Jim on scoop face before he got some gear in…..
Andy P managed about ten routes of which he solo’d eight – The Arete, Fifth horseman, thin cracks, The Nose, Niche arete, Pilgrims Progress, Little Pillar and Keep arete.
Everyone else led two or three routes on a relaxed and fun evenings climbing.
