Gordale, by Mhairi

McGeek, Greg, Damien, Pamela and I all went to Gordale on Monday. The Ratho crew (apart from Damien) had the crag to ourselves which was awesome. McGeek got straight on Huecool (8b) and had a few goes working out the moves. Looks like he will get it soon. Greg got on a "classic" 7b+ called Revival and managed to pull of LOADS of holds. He decided that it wasnt that classic and therefore ditched it altogether. Damien and I did a really short 7b called Last Dog, but it packed in the moves and was really good fun. Pamela redpointed a 6a on the other side of the crag and she was pretty chuffed.

Day 2 - McGeek and Pam did some funky trad stuff which looked good fun whist Damo Greg and I put a rope up Dog Point 7b+/7c. We worked it on a top rope and are psyched to get back next week for some redpointing action! McGeek had a few more goes on Huecool and thinks a couple of days work will do the trick. He's a machine!

It was my first time at Gordale, thought it was an awesome crag, well worth a visit and a good wee trip overall.
