Tour de Force at Clifton Crag, May 2015

Dave MacNicol finishing Tour de Force at Clifton Crag on a warm sunny afternoon, May 2015. This is probably the month when Clifton is at its finest - an incredible afternoon of good weather and climbing!

 

My nephew Douglas, at 10 years old, using a very unorthodox "knee-squeeze" technique on Liplet at Clifton crag. This is not the recommended way to climb Liplet, try laybacking the overhanging instead!!

Myself seconding the excellent "The ArÍte", July 2011. One of the best routes at Clifton, I was just checking it out for lichen etc., prior to leading it again later.... honest!

Linda doing the same thing, at the crux....
