Spring has finally Sprung

Now that Spring is here and the weather is finally picking up, a few of us decided to take advantage of the sunshine and headed down South to Hartland Quay to see what it had to offer. As Hartland is a tidal venue  you ideally want an afternoon low tide, a bit of wind and some […]

Tombstone 7c FA

It’s only been a few days since getting back from our trip to Switzerland. I haven’t had the time to contemplate writing a blog post or going through photos/videos from the trip and now I have more to write about. A few weeks back a friend Alex mentioned to me that there was an unclimbed project in Cheddar that he […]

Gorge du Tarn

Summer (if that’s what you’d call it). Come the end of August, Heath and I got so fed up of the lousy weather we headed to France in search of some sun, vitamin D and dry rock. After hearing that the Gorge du Tarn had undergone a major re-equipping project and a new guide-book that had […]

General Blog Slackness part 2

So once again I’ve struggled to keep my blog up to date. This time I’m only going to accept part responsibility. I blame the majority of it on the UK’s sopping wet climate. As most of you that live in the UK will know, it hasn’t really stopped raining since the good spell we had […]

Image of the day

In November last year Matt and I both finally succeeded on Smashing of Amps.  This route stood out for me last year, as it’s a F7c+ slab and as you can imagine it was pretty hard to get it in condition. Fortunately November brought a day of cold, crisp conditions and as you can see there wasn’t a […]

General blog slackness

Il be honest, I’ve been pretty slack on the blog case recently. So this one is going to be a bit of a general round up of the last few months. As per usual Jan and Feb were pretty quiet on the “cragging” front. Apart from a couple of excursions to probably one of the […]

When it Rains, It Pours!

When it Rains, It Pours!

December hasn’t been the best of months, not only have I been working every hour god sends covering my supposedly best mate while he’s away jet setting all over the word. “Why didn’t I think about that for my honeymoon”. On the few days that I have had off it has been rather wet. So […]

“Brean Topping”

I first tried Brean topping back at the start of the summer of 2010.  For some strange reason I thought it would be a good idea to try a route that has a couple of the smallest crimps I’ve ever pulled on in the blazing sunshine. As you would expect I didn’t gain much from […]
