Bamford Edge Meet Report – 29th May 2022

A story of two halves.

Four members started at Gun buttress on a cool but pleasant day. Initial climbs on Green Chimney and Ammo were completed as two others joined. Some rope swinging fun was had on the challenging Gunpowder crack with its overhung start, luckily no abseil was needed to retrieve gear. Robin & Linda then ascended Porthole buttress.

The second half was at the opposite end of the crag where the five remaining started on the lower tier. Leon, Gordon and Matt taking on curving crack with Linda & Rosie heading up Recess crack. The pair then moved on to the upper tier onto what sounded lick a tricky traverse! The 3 staying on the lower and going for Bilberry crack and Recess crack.

Some rain in late afternoon ended the day, but a very nice coffee and cake followed for some in the Anglers rest.

A good day out!
