After two months of miserable weather in the UK, 'Patagonia winds' have kicked up and started to dry some of the rock giving Tom Randall an opportunity to dust off his trad gear and go climb outside. Naturally, he heads straight to the Leaning Rock Buttress in Higgar Tor (England's Peak District).
The only dry routes are the arêtes, so he sets his sights on a first ascent of 'Block and Tackle Direct' - a link of a bouldering problem/dyno and an E6. It doesn't fall easily, but when it does it's sweet indeed.
