Winter is over.......bring on summer.

Seems like the days of wearing big heavy boots and carrying huge rucksacks have been swopped for bouldering mats and tight rock shoes. All good things must come to an end ....... although there is still loads of snow in Scotland! Finding it hard to commit to heading back up north - think I need to apply to ESSO for sponsorship.

I've had a couple of days out in the Peak for a spot of bouldering, first at Ramshaw and then to Baslow on a very murky day. Managed to find about 6 dry problems but 2 of them were a bit too tricky. Currently hanging out in North Wales, after surviving my lecture at LLAMFF - think it went down OK, (un)fortunately the sun was shining so numbers were down a bit.

Yesterday was a bit of a washout after the very late and very loud party combination. Today was a different matter with a trip out to the Rainbow Slab Area with Dave Rudkin. We knocked off a couple of warm-up routes and then headed for Released from Treatment. Top quality expedition on the main slab.
