Wye Valley Climbs App

Posted by on August 12, 2011 at 10:30 am

I’ve been meaning to write a climbing app for a while for Android. I’ve never gotten around to it till now as I don’t see it as a profitable market. Also, its a fairly large scale and complex area. Since I required a MapView demo for my portfolio and had a job interview coming up […]

Version 2.8.3 comes with loads of bells and whistles for web 3.0 (smirk). So nice one Mark, Cheers! Also – I’ve been pretty busy installing and […]

Kittens and Lions

My shoulders, Impingement kitten on the left, lion on the right. After a week of gentle exercise my shoulders were feeling better.

Voodoo Magic

On Saturday I returned to Dumbuck with Niall McNair to try Voodoo Magic F8b. This is a route I was very close to doing back in 1999 failing some six times reaching for the lower off chain. I can remember feeling very frustrated about this, then more so in learning of Dave MacLeod’s ascent a […]
