With the weather getting warmer and dryer, I have been very fortunate enough to be invited out again this weekend (3rd weekend in a row) to do some trad and sport climbing at Squamish. Being able to go out and climb at such a varied and amazing venue, I believe that by the time my […]
Last weekend I was fortunate to find a climbing buddy willing to drive me and him to Squamish for my first outdoor climbing session this year and in Canada overall. The weather was inviting and I have been dying to go outdoors, especially in Squamish. My climbing partner for the day was a very experienced […]
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.

With these new additions to my rack I can now most likely be fine on single pitch short climbs, and on any multi pitch routs, I can always borrow a set of nuts, cams and quickdraws from fellow climbers.
