Septembers trip to the Peak District,  Touching Rock Weekend in the Western Peaks.

Augusts North Yorkshire climbing trip,  Touching Rock Long Weekend was amazing. Lots of new faces and some regulars too. Sunny, Sunny Sunny, Robin Proctor, Farleton Upper Crag and Twistleton were our venues. Sunshine on all three days. So much sunshine that we had to fashion sun shades from emergency shelters.
