Wonderful fairly last minute overnight adventure for Annie Gilmour's birthday with Lou Cannon and Amy Kight. 9th to 10th of December 2020, inbetween shifts!
Wombled into the hut after a cruisy start from Christchurch. Amble to the close crags and did a few easy and pretty enjoyable climbs. Had cake at sunset and then cooked dinner outside the hut.

Wombling in

Lovely womble

Annie on the safe end of the rope! - check out the grin.

Contemplating the rock ahead

Lining up the feet to move up past the next bolt

Carefully does it

Clearly not as secure as feeling as one would hope...

Safe at last on this hug-able bollard

Also make a great mid-climb seat.
