A cracking evening with the boys at New Mills

We had a great evening at New Mills last night. Bertrand I started off with a repeat ascent of Mather Crack, E2 5b. I'm not quite sure when it became appropriate for me to jump on an E2 as the first route of the day, but it seemed to go pretty smoothly. Next up Bertrand got on…See More

Started climbing properly (Trad - leading) 2007, and have been bumbling along since then! Keen as mustard always desperate to get out. 2012 will hopefully see me pushing through to the E2's upwards!

Deeply vale, an accidental E2, and the clean crag crew!

Last Friday Derek, Pat, Cat and I had a nice after work session over at Deeply Vale. If you haven’t visited Deeply Vale before it is an unassuming crag, but it has great character.

El Chorro crew reunited

Two weekends ago marked a bit of a reunion as I got together with Joe, Frankie and Luke that I met in El Choro. It was really nice to get out with them again and we got a nice day in at Stanage.

We were lucky with the weather and it only rained towards the end of the day. This gave us a perfect excuse to pack up and get to the pub! For the full blog post and some nice piccies please click the link below!…
