Pentlands Post Thaw

Continuing the catch up. I was out in the Pentlands a couple of times after the thaw in mid February. There we significant drifts and snow patches around initially.

These had reduced a lot by the 23rd when I was out on a Hare Hill and Black Hill on a very windy day with Pamela.

Dartmoor

Jen & I were down in Devon for the last couple of days catching up with Chris, Jane, Jen and Patrick. On Saturday we went for a gentle wander around Dartmoor, which took in Hound Tor and Haytor.

This allowed a little big boot bouldering on the delightful rough granite. The rock was a little damp in places, but there were plenty of climbers out enjoying a better than forecast day.

Today we walked around the Otterton area taking in some of the coast and of course the compulsory cream tea.
