The Longstone Pinnacle

Tried outdoor climbing for the first time last Sunday at Symonds Yat.


Apart from the first couple of metres, I found the Longstone Pinnacle really quite easy. There were plenty of little ledges and handholds.


The weather wasn't great– bit drizzly and chilly (especially with the standing round waiting for others) but all in all it was a good day. Really good to get out and try a "proper" rock… Would be great to be good enough to try the lead roping…

Lovely area round there. Saw a peregrine falcon (they're breeding there too). Would love to go back for canoeing/walking/more climbing!

And it's good to know the pedantic safety guy has been there first!
dangerous cliffs!
