Windy Wharncliffe Wanderings

May Bank Holiday rolls around again and for the 2nd year on the trot we headed to Wharncliffe Crags to avoid the crowds. (An aside: When I used to teach Chemistry at the nearby High Green School 'Wharncliffe" was my nick-name - it could have been a lot worse!).
It was 'fresh' with a brisk north westerly, and the crag was quite busy. It turned out that Steve had only been there twice in the previous 20 years, so we ticked a few of the classics.
Scarlett's Wall Direct (photo) was the starter, S 4a in 'the Definitive' guide, my book gives it a more accurate HS 4c - nice one guys!
Monday we had to pack the car and get ready for Sweden - looks like it is time to head off again.
