New Mills Torrs

In a testament to sheer bl@@dy-mindedness, about ten of us turned up at The Torrs despite the forecasted thunderstorm. Sure enough, the thunder rolled in, lightning filled the skies and the heavens opened just as Helen and I were halfway up the first route.

Thankfully the maelstrom was short-lived and the overhanging (and “under-the-arches”) nature of the crag meant we were soon climbing again. Here’s Andy making light work of Heavy Duty and Barry on Viaduct Crack.

Great to be joined by George and Rowan from MUMC – here’s Rowan belieing her limited outdoor climbing experience with a smooth ascent of Alcove Crack.

It really is the perfect all-weather playground. Hopefully drier at Pule Hill next week!
