Heron Crag 22nd Aug

Me and John headed up to Heron today, for the Hard Rock classic of Gormenghast E1,5a ***
The main part of the crag is very clean, but some of the right hand routes could do with a serious clean up. The likes of Lago E3,6a and Mean Feat E3,5c both require a clean.
We also did Side Track VS,4c **

Another great Hard Rock tick to the Logbook.
