Rock Climbing

A weekend on Grit

Charley and I have just returned from a good 3 days in the Peak District. We sampled, or in my case re-visited some gritstone classics and had the chance to discuss future projects (both climbing and web design). We also caught up with some old friends, and helped my Mum with some tree felling and DIY!

Autumn in the Lakes

We made the most of the warm weather here in the Lake District last week and snatched a few days climbing amidst the splendid autumn colours. The photo is with Dave at Shepherds, and I’ve posted more photos of the Lakes this autumn here. Rather a contrast to last year when Ambleside was brought to a standstill by heavy snowfall and there was good winter climbing to be had.

Maybe we’re in for a change? MWIS is forecasting snow next week! The Adventure Peaks team is off to Chamonix on Thursday though to test and check out our gear ready for next January’s South Pole trip!
