December was a quiet month for Clean Ascent. The Instructors did manage a couple of trips to Portland to make the most of the unusually good weather and work towards prerequisites for upcoming qualifications.
The image above is one that will be familiar to climbers from Devon, being the view from the B3157 coast road commonly taken by those headed to Portland from the west.
I have been meaning to stop and take a picture from this view, looking down towards Chesil Beach and St Catherine's Chapel, since I first made the journey many years ago. On this day I finally did, unable to resist the colour of the sky and its reflection on the calm high water inside the beach.
