Wed 5th Aug, 2009
It was very wet in the afternoon of July 29th and, although it did brighten up later on, nobody went out to the crag to climb. August 5th, by contrast, was a dry day leading to a very warm and sunny evening. Seven people made it up to Heptonstall: Al Metelko, Jane Atkinson, Dave Wylie, Dave Dillon, Andy Grantham, Christine Stark and Trish Cranston. Two routes, "Fairy Steps" (HS, 4b) and "Trepidation" (VS, 4c) were the main focus of the evening, with Al and Andy leading them both and everyone else following up behind. There was an abortive attempt on "Curving Crack", but fading light meant that a full ascent will have to wait for another day. Jane and Dave W. also did a bit of bouldering on the Cubic Block - mainly on the easy side.
