Tom's Field and Dancing Ledge


This weekend The Williams and I headed south to the Isle of Purbeck on the Dorset Coast for a so-called stag do - basically a hard-to-veto excuse to spend a weekend in great scenery clipping bolts by day and drinking beer by night.

Tom's Field is a great little family campsite and Dancing Ledge a safe place to wield a clip stick and enjoy working out some climbing moves. I'd like to say that since having kids my desire to lead climb suddenly disappeared - but in reality, I've always been a wuss. Peter and I climbed like we used to play cricket. In other words, what we lacked in talent we made up for with enthusiasm.

The Square and Compass at Worth Matravers is a very good pub. I'm going back in there.
