Belshade Abseil

Date: Sunday 19th Dec.
Submitted by: Alan Tees
Marty, Bill & Self walked into Belshade on the most beautiful day of the year, accompanied by Mary, Gertrude and Margaret. We abbed down the main face just right of Classical Revival, the 100m rope just reaching the bottom. Everything went to plan, much to the disappointment of Marty, who complained that he had learned nothing further from the exercise (he would obviously much prefer crawling out along the river in the dark using the stars to navigate!!) Actually, he did learn a new use for a walking pole and a camera. Ladies look out!
