Checking out Low Rider at Stanage North Today I climbed one of the Peak District's best boulder problems. That's a great statement to be able to make. And I am able to make it because today I climbed Low Rider - located in an...

Had a great and blustery day out at Burbage South yesterday, when I finally managed to send Electrical Storm (7B) - one of my nemesis problems. Please read and share.

Exposure Volume 2 - review
Rock climbing is forever becoming more specialised. Bouldering, sport climbing, competitions, winter climbing, alpinism and the list goes on. As boundaries are pushed in one discipline, it becomes harder to bridge across several at the very highest level. E...
