Weekend rock climbing

This weekend was spent with two clients rock climbing in Snowdonia. We are off to the Costa Blanca for a long weekend in December so spent the weekend preparing for that. Our goal is to climb Espolen Central on Puig Campagna, a beautiful 13 pitch hard severe, and so we have been multi pitch climbing all weekend in preparation. The weekend went well so all we need is some good weather in December - fingers crossed.

I am home for a few days now, trying to organise my climbing trip to Lofoten in June of next year. Thanks to Chris Craggs for the travel advice!

Picos Photos now online

The photos of my rock climbing trip to the Picos are now on my gallery page at


Back from the Picos

I've just got back from a great rock climbing trip in the Picos de Europa in Northern Spain. I had 10 days out there with a friend in weather ranging from 28c sunshine to topping out in a snow storm. We got some fantastic alpine rock climbs done including El Jiso, 22 pitches at TD and an offorad adventure in our Seat hire car and Cepeda on Naranjo de Bulnes, another TD that finished on the summit of Spains most famous mountain.

The photos will be on the gallery pages in the next couple of days.
