Mike Adam, he of hard blocs, went back west earlier this autumn for a few days to the Cheshire Sandstone of his formative years.
The UK has a fair bit of sandstone scattered about although typically it’s areas such as Northumberland, St Bees and the South East that attract the attention and steal the limelight. Mike was at Uni in Liverpool so going back to Helsby in the Chester area was something of a ‘home coming’. Mike was clearly psyched with his trips – doubtless hooking up with one or two locals, Andy Popp included, helped.
Despite being hampered by poor weather Mike came away with a number of first ascents including Tears in Rain (Font 7b+), Wonderland (Font 7c) and Will Farrell (Font 8a).
