Autumn Update

Ed on Swonrn Enemy 8a
Ethan after the crux


Here's a quick update from what we've been up to over the last month since getting back from our summer roadtrip.

We've had a few sessions out on the limestone with the most noteworthy thing being our ascent's of JC's new route down in sleepey Dove Dale. Sworn Enemy must rank as one of the best 8a's in the Peak with some great moves through steep ground, on an amazing arch feature! Word up to JC for his vision in cleaning, bolting and sending this line.
Ed's also been ticking his way through the usual limstone boulder nasties down at Rubicon, Stoney and Nuda's. Hannibal V9 at Stoney and Dancing fish V11 at Rubicon being the 'favorites'...
Apart from that, just getting back into the training shizzzle.

Oh and I also spent the last 11 days out in the Horn of Africa visiting my dad in the amazing country of Eritrea and then the Sudan! Two incredible places with amazing beauty, history and culture. Check out all the photo's from the trip....
