It seems I've left half of my forearm an finger skin at Bridestones. I always forget the man-eating properties of gritstone, especially Yorkshire grit which tends to be particularly brutal on the hottest day of the year. Nothing of note acheived, apart from a lot of mileage, so mission accomplished. Good prep for elemental and Burnt Heather - makes a change from crimping all the time...

Fantastic day out, good scenery, good climbing, good company.

I now sport a wife-beater sunburn too. quality.
