Gimme Shelter

May 26th, 2011 by pebbles

After the apocalypse failed to show at the weekend we thought we might as well go bouldering. With no expectations of the gale blowing out, wild horses could not have dragged us to any exposed crags so we headed for the caley boulders. Me, Dave Shield, Astell and John Johnson spent a couple of happy hours on the boulders behind the Sugarloaf, which have a good range of problems. After sandpapering our fingertips on the Pancake, Yule Log and Angel Wall, me and Dave found some interesting looking stuff on some aretes, but you cant always get what you want and despite dynoing like Jumping Jack Flash we couldnt get no satisfaction. So we went back to join John and Astell on some balancy slabs, and there was much grunting, pinging and swearing until the fading light warned us that time wasnt on our side and it was all over now.
