Bit of this & that

As for getting outside on the rock, well the weather again has been pretty unhelpful recently! When we’ve planned to head out its pissed it down and blown a tornado in, and when it’s been decent we’ve been busy doing something else! Quite a frustrating few weeks to be honest. But anyways we have managed a few ticks.

Last week I had a quick hit trip down to Nesscliffe, to have a couple of days climbing with globetrotting explorer Finn McCann. I hadn’t seen him in over a year as he’s been living in the jungles of Honduras and walking across the Greenland ice cap! Although he hadn’t tied into a rope for a year and had barely climbed at all in that time he was still as strong as ever and psyched to get back on the rock. So yeh we got a wicked E5 6b done, called Trouble in Toytown, which worked its way up an amazing corner. I also tried a couple of harder lines but they were just abit damp and green. Need to head back next summer! I also did the cool traverse Little Northumberland (V9), a great crimpy test piece.

Hey Pippa!

Since getting back, me and Ethan have been out a couple of times, ticking the savage crack climb Reticent Mass Murderer (E4/5 6b) up at Cratcliffe and a first visit to Hen Cloud where I managed to scare myself up the incredible Master of Reality (E6 6c).

Reality Success!!

Running it out...

Bored and cold!

Last but not least we have built an amazing new woody in our garage!! No excuses now hey, Gamba Gamba!!!>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
