Calshot indoor meet

17/03/2018 – 17/03/2018

Attendees: Hannah, Nadia, Ruth and Steve


Arctic conditions forced the dedicated few to relocate to Calshot near Southampton.

It wasn't much warmer inside, even causing a case of the hot aches (southerner's version).

We all got stuck into some lead climbing, with Hannah and Nadia smashing an overhanging 5+, before attempting a competition 6b+. Ruth made a particularly bold diagonal traverse, with a high first bolt more fitting of a Portland landslip. I finally managed the big roof on something other than the easiest route...and was chuffed to have top roped a 7a. Cake and coffee saw a brief resurgence before we hit road, happy to have made the most of a bitterly cold day.
