MOWING WORD


Mowing Word is one of those spots which can elude climbers year after year - many is the time Iíve heard folk say ďmust get that one done tomorrow/next week/this seasonĒ, only to reappear the following year with nothing bagged in the interim. Thatís bird-restricted crags for you. But maybe thatís the attraction? Öthis means youíll never run out of routes to do - surely this is the epitome of paradise. In the meantime, devote your energy to getting started on such west-facing beauties as the amazing Diedre Sud (HS), the multi-extravaganza Heart of Darkness (HVS), Snozwanger (E1), Flax of Dream (E2) and the demanding In One Door (E5). And if thatís not enough to drag you back time and time again Ö you are climbing too fast.
