Napes Needle

In the early 90’s, Jim Dale & I would often manage to sneak a day off from work at Darchem to escape for a days climbing, This time we spent the day hitting the classics on Great Gable. I remember Arrow Head, The Needle Tophet Wall and The Needle (popular as ever).

Climbing trips to Fontainbleu just south of Paris were popular. The climbing is 'bouldering' with circuits colour coded and numbered according to grade.
