High Tor

Plans for a High Tor trip were excitedly hatched, involving Delta G and Amber Gambler, with maybe another attempt on Tales for Jake. Gearing up we found we’d failed to answer the key packing question: “How many harnesses should a team bring to the crag?” Doh!

With surprisingly little recrimination we switched plans to salvage the day with a few of the sports routes on the East Wing – with a belay attached to a tree and the leader getting the single harness. This works pretty well, and we managed a couple of 7as and a 6c (at least according to Mr Gibson – Rockfax knocked half a grade off each). Not the afternoon we’d planned, but a decent consolation.
