Wed 25th Aug, 2010
A record Wednesday night attendance for 2010 including 4 Daves(!) with Al Metelko, Andy Stratford, Gareth Williams, Wavey Davey, Dave Garland, Dave Shotton, Dave Bertalot, Carolyn Mills, Katherine Bagshaw, Kate Harvey, Mark Ashley, Nick Adamson.
All making it to the pub plus a couple of others who didn't. After being nearly eaten alive at a midgey Wilton One last week the voting was focused around getting to a crag that more or less was guarenteed "to have lots of wind". So Pule Hill was very still, very warm and very midgey last night! Routes climbed included on The Sentinal included Bed End (VD), The Peeler (S 4a), Traverse Not (HS 4c), No Exit (VS 4c). Routes on Flying Buttress included Minotaur (HVS 5a), and Flying Buttress (S 4a).
There were lots of others. Most agreed that the routes were typically Yorkshire in their undergrading and often thuggy! Midgeyness was once again a deciding factor in the convoluted voting and on the basis that limestone gets less beasties and we have only done one place with sport routes on a Wednesday this year, Harpur Hill Quarry was eventually settled on. NB according to those in the know HH does have a few excellent trad routes. A good session both on the grit and in the pub and a warm welcome to the newer faces.
