This week's Activities

It's a beautiful day here in Cornwall, which is surprising as the weather yesterday (Friday) was disgusting.  There seems to have been a trend in the weather this year, where we've had one or two days of very nice, sunny and warm conditions that then rapidly develop into cold, wet and windy conditions that seem to last ages.  Let's hope it's not a permanent shift in our weather patterns.  I would have been climbing today, but I was asked to assist with running a coasteering session in Newquay for Extreme Coasteering.  Nine brave (and slightly hungover) souls met the team down at the Gazzle for a couple of hour's of floating, swimming, scrambling, jumping off cliffs......and fun!  It may seem a little late in the season to be coasteering, but the sea is at it's warmest right now, so if you are around, get down the beach.
I went down to the big cliff of Chair Ladder on Thursday to do some more work for the forthcoming Climbers Club guidebook, spending most of my time in and around the Coliseum Wall area.  This part of the cliff is little-frequented by the majority of climbers and once on the rock, its easy to see why.  Let's just say it's not the usual quality of Penwithian granite!  The climbing here tends to be very much of the 'bold' variety.  I remember climbing Midnight Runner (E1 5b) several years ago, when I was climbing E3/4, and thinking it was a 'full on' experience, especially as I only managed to place two pieces of gear on the 115 foot (35m) pitch.  Even 'shunting' several of the climbs during my most recent visit, the climbing felt scary!
