Spain in the Peak District

Winters over and the suns come out so it's time to hit the Limestone and start cranking hard.
So off we trotted off to some quality Peak sport climbing so we can pretend we're in Spain, our first stop was Horseshoe Quarry.
Lots of other people with the same idea but it was never too busy, the BMC have done a quality job re-equipping the lower-off's and several of the routes despite a few badly placed new bolts.
The day was slightly marred by some quite aggressive route cleaning on the back wall next to Neanderthal and then pulling off some large blocks myself while trying a new line near The Whinger in the top Quarry area.

Me with the block which nearly took my head off
