Finally, in what feels an age, I've managed to have a good few days climbing on real stone in the UK. Since the start of 2014 it's all been a bit sporadic; a day here, a day there. Weather, illnesses, work, and more have all ...

DamNation Forgive my ignorance but I did not know dams could be such a highly emotive and divisive subject. DamNation is a fantastic depiction of just how damaging millions of tons of concrete and steel poured into a ...
