Moors Youth Team!

On Wednesday, me and Jake went for a trip to the wainstones to meet two other young moors climbers from 'the other side' of the moors, Jack Graham and Matthew Ferrier. Its quite exiting to meet someone new who climbs on the moors crags and especially if they're into new routing. When we arrived, Jack and Matthew were on 'Tiny's dilemma' so Jake desided to start off with the classic, and one of the best routes in the moors, 'The sphinx nose traverse'.

After soloing a few routes, I got on Concave wall, another moors classic and a fantastic slab climb.

Then Jake lead and I soloed Tiny's Dilemma, another good route.

Meanwhile Jack and Matthew were on 'central route' another superb moors hvs which we also climbed later.

After the teams 'storm' of some of the crags classics, we retired to the boulders.

It was really good to meet more psyched people, the moors scene is getting bigger! There has been another surge of development recently which has led to some fantastic new routes and problems being put by the whole moors crew. Hopefully next time we can have a whole 'moors crew' photo with some nice esoterica in the background!
