Penny out the Purse

Posted by on July 27, 2009 at 12:00 am

Got back to Upper Cave with Lindsey for an evening session on Silk Purse F7c+. This was probably the first hard sport route I’d tried (aged 15) I’ve always had a mental block about it. I remember being happy to bolt to bolt it, forearms exploding with lactc acid. I’d never really been in a […]

Admission Granted!

Got back to the Tunnel wall on Tuesday with Mike to finish off Admission. Sticking the clips up I was getting pumped which didn’t help confidence on completing the route that day. Top roping from half height I fell off at crux by bolt eight. Undeterred I went for the redpoint and found myself pulling […]

Admission Denied

On Saturday got back to the Tunnel Walls in Glencoe with Mike Lee. Thankfully the bolts were still in! Really had forgotten how awesome this wall is. Wind was blowing nicely and temp was perfect. Plan was to try Admission F7c+ and get it in a day. I stuck the clips up with aid of […]

Bulging Forearms

Got down to Kilnsey this weekend with the Glasgow lads. Managed to get Man with a Gun first redpoint. For once it felt quite steady moving through the top wall. After that I tried The Bulge F8a hoping to do it in a day or the weekend. The start was steady into 3D steepness. I […]

Kilnsey Gunning

Headed down to Kilnsey this weekend with Richard for a couple of days. We had planned on a Scottish trip but the weather dictated otherwise. I had Dominatrix F7c and Man with a Gun F7c+ on my ticklist. I had been meaning to get some of the classic Kilnsey ticks done instead of the normal […]

Shake, Rattle and Roll

Saturday 21st June. I’d hoped to get stuck into some training this week but the familiar pattern of daily exhasution creeped over me. I’d planned to train on Thursday but a 15 minute nap turned into a 4 hour sleep. I chose to avoid another 11pm training session and decided some lifestyle changes definitely need […]

Saturday 20 October. I wasn’t sure when I get back on my Camel project again, luckily a text from Michael secured another weekend visit. Determined to finish the job I got stuck into my midweek power endurance and fitness training. Mid week I was shocked to find I’d gained a bit of excess weight over […]

Lost Momentum

Steep caves are on the horizon. Saturday 14th,15th. I had planned a visit to Griunard with Ian Moody this weekend but the weather put a dampener on affairs. Instead I decided to check out some new sport crags planning on equipping a couple of F7c’s ready for Sunday. Sadly things didn’t go as expected and […]
