It was awesome to take photos of you all at The Project Climbing Centre Flashmasters Winter Comp. Series. It was a much harder set than the others but you guys smashed it!
For any higher quality versions of these photos please contact me.
Recently, we have started climbing quite a lot with a local climber, Chris Weedon. He has been climbing for best part of 17 years and is still psyched! He convinced Pymn, Tom and me to head to South Wales, the Gower, for a quick weekend away and some seriously steep sport. It was an awesome trip full of amazing rock, beautiful beaches and hard climbs.

So we haven’t posted much recently mainly because we have been out climbing as much as possible. With the long nights we don’t get in till past 10 and if we have head torches in our bags later.
I have been mainly climbing on Portland working my way through the Top 50’s with Emmie. Some to note if you are coming to the island ‘Burning Skies’, ‘Walking the King’, ‘Portland Heights’ (not yet clean) and ‘Too Wish The Impossible’ my first ever 7a onsight!
I have also added a few new climbs to my project list one being ‘Kendo Nagasaki’ which next time we go there I should get and also the amazing but big project ‘Zinc Oxide Mountain’.
Hope everyone is enjoying the sun?
