Here’s a short video from a trip to Fairy Cave Quarry, Somerset earlier this year. The video includes James Pymn and I climbing ‘Toblerone’ E1 5b and a handsfree ascent of ‘Grow your own weekend’ E2 5b by Pymn.

60 Hours in Fontainebleau

News, Trips, Video

I am guessing you guys know how much we love Fontainebleau? A lot!
Over the May bank holiday Emmie and I headed out there for 60 hours in the forest, unfortunately it rained for the first day but the second and third it was glorious.
Do you recognise any of the problems?

Introducing Lunar Beach

News, Video

Hey Guys- if you haven’t visited our Vimeo page yet, make sure you do! I have started making videos to show the beauty of Portland and also the quality of the rock. The videos I have made so far are:

Roaches Traverse:

This was the first video I shot and edited. Roaches Traverse is a nice 6b+ lip traverse at The Cuttings Boulderfield, Portland.

Pock Mark:

Neddyfields on Portland hosts some of the best flowstone bouldering I know of and is a favourite for me especially  when limited on time as it has a 2 minutes walk in. Pock Mark was a route I had been trying for a while and when I got it I felt it was worthy of a video with its tiny 3 finger under pull and 1 finger pinch start.

Pillow Talk:

I wanted to film a sport route and having Tom, Pymn and Alex there meant between us we could get all the footage needed. Again this is at The Cuttings and has a couple of nice falls while Tom is working out the start.

Introducing Lunar Beach:

I had been wanting to get out filming so asked to tag along with a couple of friends from my local climbing gym (The Project Climbing Centre) as they were putting up a ton of first ascents on the yet to be climbed beach. The area is the most northern part of the Blacknor Beach and has a mass of large boulders with overhangs, slabs and arête’s. I hope you like the video and feel free to share it.

Over the Moon – Ben Moon sends his second 9a – Wednesday night vid

Uncategorized, Video

Just short of his 49th birthday and 25 years after establishing the first 9a in the world, legendary British climber Ben Moon has sent his second route, Rainshadow, at the phenomenal grade.

Thankfully he’s provided us with a video of the feat.

Truly inspirational stuff from Mr Moon here and just proving this sport is everyone’s game, regardless of age. Over to you, Ben!
