Thought- getting an exercise routine.

So, I have been aspiring to get more physically fit ever since I did my first ever Wolfrun, about four years ago. I have already been climbing back then for a bit, did some yoga practice at home and occasionally did a small arm or core workout, but everything was all over the place. I […]

Settling in – Work/Travel in Canada

So the first few weeks after my isolation has ended have been super busy trying to sort bits out while starting work. I have started working at Cypress Mountain (Ski resort), and while doing so, I still had to sort out my SIN (Social Insurance Number), set up a bank account, get familiar with travelling […]

A Dream of White Horses

This iconic 140m, 4 pitch HVS 4c, 3-star sea cliff climb is UK classic!!! After reading a little bit more into it, and gaining some knowledge from fellow climbers that have done the route themselves, I felt my current confidence and experience was enough to have a go at part leading it safely.

Escaping the rain – Climbing at Aldery Cliff

Aldery Cliff is a slabby piece of rock with routes averaging from VD to E3, with some nice VS and HVS in between. The crag itself is not that big, with only 63 routes. At this time of the year, it is also very green so be careful not to catch a stinging nettle while […]

Climbing at Horseshoe Quarry

Into the Labyrinth was my second lead of the day. Well, originally when my partner thought this was a good climb for me to try out, with a bit of a tricky start, he thought this was a one star 5a or a 5+. When I went to add this into my UKC Logbook, Rockfax has re-graded it as a one star 6a since the route was retro-bolted 😀

Climbing and Walking at Matlock

I have been to Matlock Wildcat crag a couple of times before, but this time I managed to get in a lead on the Cat Walk HS 4a before the rain started to come on and off. Very nice route with loads of safety gear placements and just amazing views all over. A bit greasy […]
