The best time of the year is now. Everywhere! Not just for climbing but for everything (maybe not sunbathing). The sun is out every day and the air is cold and crisp. In true style I knackered a finger, so that explains my lack of posting recently. Lots of time to get out and cruise some easier stuff. But its getting better now, a bit annoying having also had a bad finger most of last year (different one), but at least I got good at 3 finger climbing! I was in good shape (for me) and ready for some hard projects but the weather, until now, has been all over, too wet, too hot, too humid, too cold. Actually I didn’t miss much. Lots of route setting has been good to slow down the cake intake; I even managed a font 8a the other day, at the Tor of all places, one I’ve not done before too, which is pretty rare! So things should be all good for the next week when I’ll be out in China. I’m hoping the weather will be as perfect as it is here in the UK. Packing now, in goes the flapjack, noodles are nice for sure, but maybe not 3 times per day every day!
This summer came together much like most of the best things do, completely...
