Busy August....

As the rain pelts into the side of my house I'm taking a well earned rest! I have a few days off in which to prepare for a 3 week trip to the Ecrin area of the Alps with Jen - super psyched for some sun and some big alpine rock routes! Check out the Aiguille de Dibona.

Work has been very busy In August and I have had 3 days of scrambling this week with Mark who is preparing for a trip to Jordan and Wadi Rum. Despite the wind and rain we managed 3 excellent days and covered a lot of ground including Direct start to seniors ridge (II), Cneifion Arete (III), Nor Nor Grove (II) and Little and North Gullies (I/II) on Tryfan east face.

Jen and I managed to get away for a sunny weekend to Pembroke - the climbing here is some of the best in the world - and combined with amazing beaches and sun make this a great place for a trip. If you've not climbed there you are seriously missing out! Big holds, steep routes, good gear, blue sea and fine ale... what more do you want? I can run guided weekends there if you are interested.
