A typical British summer day; cool with some low cloud and a little bit of rain just to keep the rock moist ! Headed up the North ridge from the road, very surprised at how poor the scree was, not having climbed here for 22 years. Anyhoo, scrabbled my way up to the first flat bit, went wandering vaguely up the North Ridge and round to the left onto the East Face and entered Nor Nor gully, quite damp and unpleasant scrambling. Thus onto the North Peak, crossed the col and ascended to Adam and Eve. Did not go for the freedom as I did so 22 years ago and the wind was strong, and I'm a coward. Very dull scramble down the South ridge and plod back to the road.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
