Blackstone Edge

Another respectable turn-out by the KMC, with regulars Dave Wylie, John Cox, Mark Ashley, John Guest, Trish Cranston, Dave Dillon and Al Metelko being joined by newcomers Matt from Milnrow, plus young Gordon (who climbed) with his Dad (who supervised). A brief (and rather incomplete) summary of the routes climbed is as follows: South Chimney (Diff): Dave W. (solo) North Chimney (Moderate): Dave W. (solo, twice), Trish Cranston (solo), John Guest (solo) Pendulum Swing (VS, 4c): Mark Ashley (lead), John Cox (second, then lead), Trish (second), Dave W. (lead), John Guest (second with lots of blood) Pendulum Swing Direct (HVS, 5a): Dave D. (top-rope), Al (top-rope) Twin Cracks (V-Diff): Dave W. (lead, right hand crack only) Central Groove (Severe, 4a) Central Crack (V-Diff): John Cox (lead) Belly on a Plate (VS, 4c): John Cox and Mark Ashley (comedy lead/second combo) Random bouldering By the end of the evening, at least half a dozen from another (non KMC) group had also turned up, so this small gritstone outcrop was getting pretty crowded!
