New Bloc At Last

Well after a week of really funny weather I have been lucky to be trying the fastest drying bloc in Northumberland, I did the stand up two weeks ago and thinking it might go from a sitter I got up early several morning last week to work on the link, dragging out my Dad and Springer, but with no luck and at times shit conditions. The weather was set to be shit so I thought it would have to wait, but after picking Suzan up in Leeds on Saturday and having a nice day at Armscliff showing her around, it was back to Newcastle where it was pissing down.

We to wake up on Sunday morning to a grey sky but dry ground so, I dragged Suzan out to spot( well really she was up for it.) After a short warm up in a light drizzle, it was straight to work. With a couple of slight adjustment to my sequence I fell off the last hard move and unusually for me I was pretty chilled. Next go I was quickly into the last move trying hard, then pushing on into the pop to the lip then manteling it out. In the bag and with a spilt tip Blood Sport was born. Not really sure of the grade always hard if you spend a few days on things but I think in the area of font 8b.

Then it pissed it down again putting a dampener on the bbq at sSteve house later that night. ( wish I had, had my camera as I could have got some great shot of Moir and Steve)

Past 2 weeks

A busy 2 week, last week I a mainly trained and trained not really sure what for at the minute, did 2 new blocs at shaftoe, with still a couple waiting for me to get back on them. I also had a day out with the boss Steve Roberts to caley great fun even if a little to hot.

At the weekend I went to Amsterdam to see suzan, the flight was so bad lots of thunder storms around the airport, had a good weekend with a mix of climbing and chilling.

This week the weather has been shit in Newcastle, so I have trained and trained and done some work, think more of the same this weekend.

more mello than magic

More Mello than Magic

Well we went to Magic last week, me Suzan and Smith. Weather was shocking for the first two days which meant that we climbed very little but meant I could work on Never Ending Story as it was the only thing dry.

So we went over to Mello and the weather was great even a little too hot so Smith got his shorts on Suzan was bikinied up. We had a really good day, after this it was back to magic the weather was still so shit across most of Europe. We had a rest day and had some good fun check out the vids.

Then it was back to Mello this time great conditions and I set a couple of old projects to rest which is always nice, suzan was also on good form dispatching as well, and smith was getting close to a project.

After a long day we stayed the night in Mello, the next day we awoke to sun and again it was a little hot. I was tired suzan was bleeding but Smith was still up for it, how ever I think the condition where not good enough, so it was back to Magic.

I was up for Steffen Wolf but it was wet so I rested, then on the last morning just climbed some good problem I have done before, A great trip mainly due to the people and not the climbing.
