It had been 13 years since we’d last done Boars Head and with a still, sunny winter’s day upon us it was a perfect opportunity to revisit. My memory of the previous visit was a windy precarious position which I didn’t enjoy very much – it was pretty early in my outdoor adventuring days though. The track work leading out to Boars Head is pretty impressive – presumably the efforts of the local climbers.
As I was preparing to abseil a couple of climbers arrive. After exchanging hellos one of the guys thanked us for efforts with the website and how much he’d used it over the years. I was a little taken aback – not that I don’t get recognised from Tom’s photos – but it normally takes more than a few seconds! I guess I was in the position I’m likely most photographed in – going over the edge of the abseil, with my helmet complete with name tag on!
We had a bit of an explore above Devil’s Hole before enjoying a late leisurely lunch in the sun. A beautiful day in the mountains.
