Katy Whittaker's Summer Climbing

 
Katy Whittaker's Summer Climbing
 
October 26, 2010 -  Katy Whittaker    
 

Can’t really say I have had a massively successful summer in terms of doing my projects, but I have been training a lot and starting eventually to feel strong. Which is nice. I managed to get myself up a couple of routes during the summer, I did Powerplant at Cheedale and Caviar at Rubicon.

 

Had an amazing day at Gogarth in August, just went for they day. Did ‘Dream of White Horses’ and ‘Quartz Icicle’, neither hard routes but both totally amazing, especially dream. I got the last pitch of ‘dream of white horses’, which is the best, jug pulling whilst traversing around a sort of amphitheatre. I would love to go and do it again.

Went to the Frankenjura for a month in September which was really cool, it is a beautiful place with lots of nice pockety limestone (and crazy golf.). The weather wasn’t amazing, but I can’t complain that much because there is nearly always a crag that stays dry in the jura. I did have a couple of projects but due to bad skin and wet rock I had to sack them off, and settled for some mileage. I did a lot of 3 star 7cs which was pretty fun and had some amazing climbing on. Then unfortunately I had to fly home and start my final year at uni…which sucked!

Now I am psyched to climb on the grit :)
