A lovely day at Chair Ladder

I was back in Cornwall this week and spent a couple of days at Chair Ladder, not far from Land's End.  I had the company of a very interesting guy, Robin Garton, who came into climbing later on in his life.  Having been gripped by the climbing bug, Robin has ventured to the Alps in the company of guides and friends and has conquered the Matterhorn. Having seen people climb at Chair Ladder and never climbed there himself, he gave me a call and we hooked up.  There was a bit of a swell running, so we did the delightful Original Route (first climbed by my hero, Colin Kirkus back in 1938),  before doing battle with mega-classic, Pendulum Chimney.  This route is one of the climbs that is featured in the book 'Classic Rock, and has become a route that the majority of people head for on their first visit, but today, we were the only people on the cliff.. The route can also have nesting seabirds on it at this time of year, but there didnt seem to be any nesting just yet.  Once at the top Robin announced that at 66, he was a little tired and a cup of tea would be a good idea!

Not everywhere is usually large enough and straightforward to set up hall, which often tremendously lessens the number of choices with arrangement The installing windowpane requirements be matched up to the primary attributes of the main interior

With it's non-tidal south-west outlook, and a host of quality climbs, at all grades, there is always something you can climb, no matter the conditions.
