A somewhat windy Saturday saw 8 members head to Hedbury for a mixed day of trad and sport climbing. We started at Mike's Corner after a interesting approach through a cavernous tunnel. Only a few trad routes were attempted, the best being Judy (S 4a) climbed by Neil and Hannah. Whilst Anton and Steve made use of the descent climb for a spot of trad training. Moving back to the shelter of Hedbury quarry we warmed up on a couple of sport routes. This led to the tricky Moves for the Masses (6a+) which proved to be too stiffly graded for most. All in all a varied day with some sport, some trad and a bit of lounging in the sun too.
