Rain didn’t stop play.

We were supposed to be heading towards Lliwedd with Wrekin Mountaineering Club but the weather was wet and windy. A hasty change of plan led us towards the crags above Llangollen.
Opting, ever the optimists, to try and get a route in at Worlds End rather than plod along the top of the quarries. Some of the routes at the End were partly dry, some were, like us, being hammered by a 40+ mph wind.
After a quick recce of the camping pods at Abbey Farm for a future residential project, an hour or so was spent scoping future projects then we retired towards tea shops and book shops of Llangollen.
A 1954 first reprint of Ascent of Everest by John Hunt for £2.50 was a particular high-light.
Another brew considering whether to buy the Scooby-Doo mobile, and then we spent a while on the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct (built by Thomas Telford 1795-1805) hypothesising about throwing a rope off it. As if.

Not the most hardcore of outdoors days but fun nonetheless.
