There goes the summer! After, what seems ages, the weather finally broke at the weekend and now there are localised thunderstorms and torrential rain sweeping across the county. I would like to say that it means a reduction in pace for me, but I am still hard at it. This week I am up on Salisbury Plain helping Bucks Army Cadet Force with climbing activities for their cadets. That doesn't mean I haven't been working in beautiful Cornwall though. Far from it. I have had a string of fabulous people wanting to sample the delights of Cornish rock and they have come from as far as Germany and Scotland! It has been so hot on occasions that the rock has almost been too hot to touch! I have also been on seveal raiding parties into Somerset and climbed at several of the limestone quarries that are hidden away from many climbers and are only known and visited by locals. They aren't particularly beautiful places, but have a certain amount of charm. Fairy Cave Quarry being a case in point and is definately worth checking out, if you are in the area and enjoy climbing on slabs.
