Past few days

Weather looked great in the peak, keen to get back on voyager , i set off from newcastle. Got to Leeds and the call from Percy to say the weather was shit, he was not wrong. So it was a day in climbing works. Did the new yellow circuit all 42 blocs, very dirty.

Back up north i was looking to go high, but strong winds meant that i had to change my plans so me and springer went to try a project that i had tried some time ago. In some woods in the depths of Northumberland, a steep wall on pocketsand small edge, after a bit of working i pulled it together producing a powerful 8a unnamed as yet, spring is sorting out the video so it will be up soon.

Had a snow board lesson in the morning, then with blue sky it was off to burbage north to try voyager with Micky, although a little tired and battered after my lesson, i had a good session on it. Really is a great line just so hard on the skin.

out and about

Yesterday great weather in the north, start to drive to the peak but got the call from Percy say it was shit, so turn off to Yorkshire where i had a fruitless couple of hours, then it was off to the north york moors to check out a couple of things, was really nice to be out on such a nice day.

Today i had a meeting with Steve at the mountain boot (scarpa), and yes the new shoe are due by the start of next month, also the new scarpa website will be live as of early Feb, i will keep you up to date.

then it was back to the lab with Sabby

This time i felt better on most of the test and Gaz and Dave were pushing hard, it was the last session for the 2 of them, however i have one left, check out the video to see what i have to look forward to.

Hopefully the weather will be good this weekend me and spring have a couple of high ball projects in Northumberland to get on so fingers crossed.
