Had a good day on my own today, you wouldn't normally see me with my top off but it was so hot I was absolutely dripping. Not the best of days for climbing to be honest, all the handholds felt really slippery and insecure because of the heat. The last problem, Tall Tales, a route I did in 2010, is my only new route at Scugdale. I've failed to repeat it on my last few visits so was surprised today with conditions being like they were. If your wondering why I'm in my underpants it's because my jeans just wouldn't give me the flexibility to reach the first foothold. I failed five times with trousers on, took them off and got it first time!
I don't take myself too seriously, all the routes are pretty easy by today's standards and I put music over the top to break the silence.
