Attendees; Robert Clark, Brian Tarnowski, Holly Warder.
It wasnt a superb sunny evening like the previous two mid week meets, but it was dry, and a stiff breeze kept the midges away. It was quite a busy Millstone Quarry evening, with a few other teams around the Embankment Area, including a climber cruising London Wall; She paused on the top section, quite a way above her last protection, and turned round to chat merrily to her belayer, before strolling to the top.
We climbed a varied selection of routes; Hells Bells (HS 4b), Midrift (VD), Giants Steps (D), Whitehall (HVS 5b), The Mall (VS 4c), Chiming Cracks (HS 4b).
A fine crag if you like steep cracks and bold aretes. Park in the NT car park at Surprise View, and then a short walk brings you to the crag. I will be around for an early start (2pm ?) if anyone else fancies it.
Notes from the BMC RAD; A loose block at the top of Scoop Crack. Tawny Owls in the vicinity of Gimbals/Estremo. So best to avoid these routes.
I intend to meet and start at the right hand end between Hells Bells Area and Embankment Wall Area.
