The battle against the cold is being won. I'm particularly smug about my crag hot water bottle. It's basically a normal hotty stuffed in a £3 bottle cool bag off eBay. Field trials have it still effective 2.5 hours after Filling ( 1hr walk in, 1.5 hrs use).
The field study in question was back up to Marchlyn. This time the nexus of conditions and free time did not coincide with a knackered core from pilates. I got a whole 2 finger pads to the hold! It's progress folks, but baby steps...
Also whilst up there I knocked off the latest stander from my landscaping efforts :
Pebble Helm is about 6A and will have a very tasty sitter.
In other news, I have a new brake on the boulder scooter, as the old one wore through. Initial impressions are it runs a little hot, and I don't seem to be able to go that slow... Could be exciting.
