Learn to Lead

Had a great week working on the learn to lead climbing course. The weather was great for the first two days but then rained for the next two, so the hunt for dry rock was on? but not found.  The last day however was dry. It was a great end to the course.

Devon and Cornwall

Had a few days in Devon and Cornwall last week. Climbed at the Dewerstone, Daddyhole and Bosigran. We dodged the rain as best we could and got some great routes in.

Grit Day

Had a great day on Sunday. In the morning I had a climbing taster session and the afternoon teaching leading. The weather was great in the morning but had a few hail showers in the afternoon but other than that the weather was fine, bit breezy but if you had enough layers on you were fine, all in all a good day.

Great end to the day

It was a windy Saturday so ended up going to Lawrencefield, which every body had the same idea. Got a few routes in then headed to Yarncliffe which was surprisingly quiet. We had a great afternoon climbing.

Great rope work

Bouldering at Burbage

On Tuesday got out bouldering it was a bit damp in the cracks but then the sun came out for a short time and it felt amazing. Were I was climbing I saw this rotting tree stump and it had so much lichens and fungi on it and the light reflecting on it made all the colour's look amazing.  


On Sat 15th I visited Glen Coe and soloed Aonach Eagach Ridge. What a great route, there was so much snow on top and not as hard as you would like so it made it a bit more exciting. Weather was not to bad and by the afternoon you had a great view but windy. I recommend this route to all.
