First day on rock in 2009

After a couple of VS climbs, hugging the rock for dear life, I
relaxed a bit and started to remember how to climb. It wasn't cold,
for March, but the wind made for chilly belaying at the top of the
crag towards evening.
Very happy to have led 2 HVS5b on my first day back.

We're now in The Angler's Rest in Bamford with pints of Deuchars.
All's well in our world.

Update: The day's tally:

Heather Wall VS 4c (JB lead)
Big Chris HVS 5a (NH)
Tinker's Crack VS 4c (JB)
Townsend's Variation HVS 4c (NH)
Leaning Buttress Direct HVS 5b (JB)
Queersville HVS 5a (NH)
The Flange HVS 5b (JB)
