Climbing (Bouldering) 22:00 
Figuratively roped in the other boys who'd done the Northern Cross-Country Relays to go bouldering at The Climbing Work before the trek back across the Pennines.
Mainly did demonstrations on the greens (the easiest problems) for Ross and Phil and reds for Jed, who was a bit more of a natural.
Did a very tricky yellow one early on that involved stuff that was a bit crimpy for me.
Did a couple of cool ones on a slab at the far end from the entrance: one went across three black pyramid volumes for your feet and up two massive cloud shaped pink volumes, the other had some spread out green holds and to finish it I was basically doing a single leg squat on my right leg, facing to the left and holding the arête with my left hand as I flagged my left foot to allow me to reach up to the top hold with my right hand. A bit sketchy!
Got Jed up a balancey red one that made you hang onto an arête and lean away before finishing off on an 'Irn-Bru' coloured one. It was essentially one for swinging around under a roof and then climbing up the flat side. Phil was a bit gobsmacked by seeing some toe and heel hooks and a campus move. I was a little surprised too but didn't finish it completely.
