Photos: Rock Climbing in Torquay, Devon

The high pressure that is giving us the current spell of hot and dry weather is not great for giving us any waves, so we have been looking for alternative activities.

So for something to do, a load of us went rock climbing at London Bridge in Torquay. London Bridge is a natural limestone arch surrounded by deep water which is ideal for climbing.

The technical term for it is Deep Water Solo (DWS). DWS is climbing the rock face with no ropes, using the deep water below to "cushion" your fall should you let go of the rock.

So here are the photos from the past week.
