June.... disappearing

Since we left Chamonix

Week 1: Back home, doing heaps of admin - thinking about climbing... fixing the van. Running navigation courses

Week 2: Sheffield, back on the grit. Had a real stinker, was climbing really badly out on the grit. Went for a good session down the Climbing Works - got things going again then had a good session at Black Rocks, Wildcat Crag, Stanage and some bouldering at Curbar. Feels good back in Sheffield, a bit different topping out on a boulder compared to the Alpine Routes!

Week 3: North Wales, Time to go for more adventures and to get some MIA preperation in! So since I have been here it rained so I went down the PYB wall, went for a massive mission on Heather Terrace on Tryfan and Tryfan Bach, a good session cruising the classics at Tremadog, a Navigation Course around some of the more complex navigation areas here, a day out at Gogarth which ended up with us climbing at Holyhead Mountain and then that brings us to today - a good day out soloing on Idwal Slabs along with a continuation up to Cneifon Arete and down Y Gribin.

Sun is out now, Paulo is joining me today for a good 2 days of cragging - got a lot on the cards, probably cruising the longer classics in the pass.

Lakes next, then Chamonix!
