Chris Malcolm traversing the South Quarry, Salisbury Crags
I’ve been climbing this for 53 years. Most of it’s easy. A few bits are pretty difficult. I’ve rarely been good enough to do it without falling (or jumping) off at least once. I’m getting near the part where a finger in a quarrying bolt hole being able to lift most of my weight permits a very useful move. I was struggling repeatedly with that in my late teens that got me up to being able to do a one armed pull up. Now it’s quite a struggle to do a few two armed pull ups. I should get up there more often. And remember to take my rock shoes!
May 29th: After my visit in Sterling, Two others ( Sam and Mike) took the bus to Dunne. The small country town was the location of the Dunne castle. aka. the Monty Python of the Holy Grail castle. So that was pretty sweet, and the fact that theres been a castle there since the 9th century and the views again.
