Looking for a new rope?

Bluewater Lightning Pro:

Looking for a new rope? Well, I recently got my hands on a Bluewater Lightning Pro from Holdbreaker. The rope is a 9.7mm double-dry (meaning that it is protected from water and dirt).

Tenaya Iati, yes please!

Tenaya are a Spanish climbing shoe company which we first discovered when Connie returned from a trip to Spain with a pair of RA’s. Straight away people were interested as the quality was so apparent. Shortly after that we meet up with our northern friends in Font for our annual trip and we noticed Rhys was smashing out 8a’s in his pair of Masai. Since then most of us have stuck exclusively with Tenaya and with their new models Iati and Tarifa I dont see us leaving anytime soon.

Alpkit Project Review

Friends of the Send

Buying a bouldering pad can be an expensive experience but I have managed to put it off for 5 years. My first bouldering trip was to Fontainebleau in August 2012 with a group of friends one being Seb Lee. Seb had been climbing for a few years at this point and is the kind of guy who has everything you need and anything to borrow. After that first trip, I was hooked…but still without a pad. I ended up using Pymn’s pad a lot as we mainly climb together anyway.

Everyone needs them and we’re no exception so we’ve set about growing our family and finding friends who share our outlook.

Fernweh will be the first to join our Friends of the Send where we will show you our favourite little climbing brands. And, as a result of our new found friendship, we are very happy to offer you a whopping 20% discount off Fernweh chalk bags, clothing and accessories.
