So had a few real good sessions over the last couple weeks or so, went up Burbage North with famous lime crusher Jon Clark, word up brother, last week were we both quickly dispatched The Terrace, Font 7C, a really funky little problem and deffinatly one of my new favourites.
Saturday we headed up to the plantation, with the aim of getting Brad Pit, F7C+. Came close to this classic a couple years back and after a warm up and a few tries I was able to get the beast! YEAH! Really stoked for sure, such a wicked boulder!
Hoping to get bouldering again this week, lots of snow this way at the moment so we wills see if we can take advantage of the conditions and crushhh!

Loving the whole trad game at the moment, its just great to be out at loads of different crags doing lots of different routes, enjoying some really good conditions. Visited the Cowper Stone a week ago and did a few things before going on a sweet soloing mission at the popular end until it got dark.
Yesterday we went over to Higgar, always been keen for this place but never actually got round to going. Pretty windy times up there but after a quick warm up we did The Rasp. Such a great line with fantastic climbing man and was able to use some Cornice skills too! HA! After this I managed to do Bat Out of Hell E5 6a, which is another wicked line straight up the middle of the block, and diffinatly one of my favourite routes.
Then had a couple of tries on Block n Tackle, but couldn't quite work it out, we needz some beta! However we willz be back soon fo show!
Training this week and hoping to get out ont one or two of the days. Keen for some Curbar action next!

Really starting to get back into all this grit trad shizz now, and the syke is brewing again for the weekend!
