Trad Climbing at Bowden Doors, Northumberland

Today I went Trad climbing with Ross and my Dad at Bowden Doors. Big improvement on the weather since last visit. I climbed 4 routes and placed gear on 2 of them.

Getting organised - note Ross's spanish walking stick!

First climb of the day - Deception Crack -VD.

Adding lots of weight with the gear!

At one point a couple of low flying Tornadoes deafened us. It was a fly past!
The climbs we did were Deception Crack; Black and Tan; Eliminate and I tried Stretcher Wall but it was very reachy! It was cool.
