It turned out to be third time lucky and we finally managed to climb outside. The original plan had been to go to Swanage, but with a cold easterly wind predicted, we opted for Bowles as the safer weather bet.
It was still quite cold and the rock was a bit wetter than we'd hoped, but with the choice of routes on the crag, we soon had some top ropes set up, and started climbing.
It was Hannah's first outing on sandstone, and it took us all a few routes to settle in, but we all managed a good range of routes (with much debate on the correct route, Jingo Wobbly vs Climbers Club) from UK grades 3a to 5c.
Here's hoping the weather warms up a bit soon!
