Climbed 'Night Out' at Deeply last night. Now that's never HVS ! I'd say its E1 any day. Anyone else lead it onsite? Ha'penny Arete, did that again too, is much less 'hairy'.Continue

Max Bretherton commented on Jill Brumby's event 'Wednesday night Mob climbing meet - Hobsons Moor'
"I went to Hobson Moor after work anyway as the traverse is always dry. The quarry was mostly dry by then and most of it was climbable. I did the traverse and a few solos. Would be great to carry this over to next wk. Is that how it works ?"
