Well we're still without access - but yesterday was the first 'rest day' in which we went to coningham in the morning and climbed on the small red sandstone sea-cliffs. James and I went for a dive - a wonderful swim along the kelp edge with the broad fronds moving and folding beneath us, Some of the seaweed was so fine (no real wave action) that it looked like smoke or a cloud. We saw an enormous sea-horse -fully a foot long, and any number of other strange (to me) fish. Altogether superb,Fully worth shivering for.And the climbing was fun, even if the rd need some kind of marker, and a tape measure.
In the afternoon we went to Freuhof crag with Roger Parkyn - an urban training crag - which was badly undersold. It's not Coningham which is picture perfect but is good climbing
