Tuesday was the best of the week and we spent it in the suntrap of White Ghyll
Wednesday was forecast to deteriate significantly mid morning so we made a quick raid to Pavey Ark and came away with an ascent of Coati (VS 4b) topping out just as the rain arrived
Raven Crag Buttress (VD) was our choice for a wet Thursday. However we opted to ab off after the first pitch which had proved awkward and greasy
Despite a good forecast for Friday we woke to heavy showers and strong winds. We perservered with plan A trekking up to Gimmer Crag. The forecast break in the weather was late but we started up the waterfall of Ash Tree Slabs (VD+) just as the wind changed. We topped out an hour later on dry rock in the sunshine. A Route (MS) was the final climb of the week ascended on what could almost be described as warm rock.
