Tiny mountain, big adventure

Good footage of Ian Parnell and Tim Emmett climbing the hard Scottish mixed route Pick'n'Mix IX,9. I could never push the boat out that far!

Training for northern Norway: southern chalk

Nick and I are off to northern Norway at the end of February for three weeks of arctic ice climbing. Inspired by the thought (and yes, it's VERY inspiring) we threw off our festive lethargy and drove down to the south coast for a bouldering workout on the chalk cliffs.

The cliffs sheltered us from the northerly wind, and the winter sun shone on our backs. So although it was the 2nd day in January we trained in T-shirts.
