It has been very busy few weeks since last post. Weather have been amazing through and I was constantly climbing outdoors. Lot of practice sessions and  checking new routes on Helm Crag. They should all be included in the new FRCC guide. Especially Illuminaty HVS is worth doing.

Few days were spent on Black crag above the Wrynose pass. Beautiful rough rock and south facing position gave days special feel. I managed to lead some HVSs but still only looking from the distance on those E1. I got another trip planned for so I'll give them a top rope ascent and see how they feel.

I had a good day on the Pavey Ark yesterday. We did four pitch Crescent Slabs Sev.  Then moved to the shade of Bright Beck Crag and checked less traveled routes on there. Great routes on a roughest slab ever just a shame there wasn't much protection avaiable.

Thursday we went to the Black crag and Long Scar again. Quiet few routes got done with some practice for SPA. I led the Ann's Agony HVS and toproped the Glass Slipper E2 5b and Sleep On My Pillow E1 5b. Think I'll be going for a lead on that one next time around.
