Fairy Cave Quarry


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.

Fontainebleau has been a common hang out for the whole of the After The Send team for years now. We have learnt so many different things from that forest- technique, surviving in cars and vans but for me I have learnt that I just love sandstone! It is such an incredible rock to climb; a bit of creativity and body tension is all you need. So when Pymn and Connie came back from a trip to Europe with a new guide book to a sport crag in Luxembourg boasting sandstone sport (!!!), it wasn’t long until I was planning a trip there.

Fancy a trip to the Gower?

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.

60 Hours in Fontainebleau

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?

When in Benidorm…climb!?!

News, Trips

In true After the Send style, we got to the airport with five minutes to check in. In this short space of time, Pymn went and bought some drinks at the most expensive bar in the world (yes, the airport bar), Tom waited with the bags and I went to get my Euros. We had just about finished our drinks as the queue to get on the plane died down. We were lucky that Ryanair didn’t seem to be checking the size of your hand luggage as our three giant rucksacks filled with climbing and camera gear were not going to fit in the test slots, and we breezed through.
