Touching Rock Weekend – Western Peak District – 14th & 15th Sept 2019

Septembers trip to the Peak District,  Touching Rock Weekend in the Western Peaks.

Gritstone climbing at Castle Naze, some evening entertainment and then over to the Roaches for Staffordshires finest Edge.

Castle Naze is a great little venue, the group tackled not only the exposure, but the course grit exceptionally well. Outdoor Rock climbing is completely different to indoor climbing in so many ways, not just the lack of a roof over your heads.

On our trips, it’s not all climbing, lots of fun and entertainment. Even the odd cocktail should the occasion arise in the evening. But we are all tucked up in bed, tents, vans or B&B’s by a reasonable hour.

Over at the Roaches, we were met with Drizzle and fog. Not to be put off, the gang got to work tackling some of the longer climbs on grit. 24metres high in some instances. Top tip when rock climbing or walking, keep hold of those useful bags you might get ropes delivered in, they make excellent portable waterproof storage devices. Thanks Inglesport.

Well done everyone, look forward to seeing you over the Winter months.
