Absolutely brilliant day out with Chris, Ben B. and Joe. Even the weather was fabulous despite an ‘iffy’ forecast. We have all been climbing under Chris’s expert instruction for a few months at Newburn Leisure Centre and it was really good to get on some real rock. We managed to climb 7 routes during the day, with the most amazing views from the top of the crag. Nice balance of climbing, basking in the unexpected warm sunshine and tucking into lovely picnic food too! Thank you Chris for giving us some great climbs and keeping us safe. Thanks to Ben for the picnic! Great therapy…thanks guys!
