Club Trip to Cornwall Easter 2016

We had a great days climbing on Good Friday at Bosigran , the weather was wonderful . The day was spent climbing some classic routes such as Doorpost. Autumn Flakes, Suicide Wall, Doorway, Anvil Chorus, Alison rib, ledge climb, Oread and Big top plus a few more.  
Then it all changed with the arrival of Strom Katie waking up on Saturday morning to wind and rain and the tents getting a real battering. All that could be done was to seek shelter in the local cafes and sample cream teas and pasties before heading home.
