First of the bouldering routes. This was the first time myself and Alice had bouldered outside so we opted for easy ones! This was about a 4a.

Such a contrast from yesterday.

More breathtaking views today!

Nick climbing up the rock.

Couldn't resis a few posing shots!

Warm sunshine and a difficult problem...

We set up a top rope on this one which was an E1 just to give it a go. It was hard...

Old Millstones left by Stanage Edge.

Fantastic views down the valley.

Patches of snow still about on Kinder Scout.

Mam Tor and Lose Hill - we have a further day in the Peaks which we all agreed to go for a walk instead of climb. Thats the ridge we will do.

Lovely to be up here in the sunshine.

The sun starting to set on a superb days climbing. Probably one of the best days climbing I've ever had!

Finishing up with an abseil down a 10 metre rock face and a look over to enjoy the sunset.
