The morning started with me getting kitted up in my wetsuit and getting back in a Kayak on flat water for the first time in what feels like a long while. It was the first time in a while as well, on flat water at least.
After an hour on the water being coached on flat water techniques it was all over far too soon. As I got of the water LJMU Outdoor Ed Freshers were getting on the water for their intro to paddling. So I had a quick chat with the lecturers before heading off to join Jess and Sam at the Roaches.
After meeting up with Jess, Sam, Clare and Kelsey we started climbing. Clare led up Maud's Garden a multi pitch VDiff, and then I led up Heather Slab (S 3c). By this time the Midges were out in force so we escaped to the campsite to have dinner.
After dinner we headed back out to The Roaches for some night time bouldering.
