Shut down


Me and springer went to Callerhues to try and repeat a newish 7c+, after a few attempts i found myself lost trying to get on top of the bloc. After a couple of really bad falls i left it for another day.

Callerhues is a great high ball venue on great rock well worth a visit.

Blue Sky


Yesterday morning i set off to Sheffield hope to climb outside but the met office paint a wet and wind picture so climbing works was looking like the venue.

Almost at Sheffield with a blue sky and it was not too warm. May it was going to be the day for Careless Torque, me gaz and percy and the pads,(even the big one from climbing works) were off on one . After a brief warm up and percy lowered down and chalked the top grips, it was on. Second go i found my self stood up and going for the top moves that turn out to be not so bad and found my self standing on the top of one of the best blocs in the peak.
Done Careless Torque ground up pretty happy.

Then we did Big Air and a good hard session at climbing works , all in all a great day out.

Home for a week

After snowboarding it was a busy week of coaching but managed to get out a couple times, on the grit. Working on projects in the peak even with the hot condition i was making progress on careless torque by the end of sunday afternoon i was stood up and making progress towards the top.

Today it was off to font, leaving a dry newcastle and arriving to rain, although in the afternoon we did get out and dry a few things off, so we are hoping for a better day tomorrow.
