Scotland is blessed with loads of rock and loads of rock types. Yet despite its wealth of rock Scotland has rarely been the testing ground of international rock climbing standards at least not by those looking on from the outside and is almost never on anyone's list of destinations.
The weather and work-life balance has been rubbish of late but I still have managed to get out and grab a few personal firsts (and some lasts). The last time I blogged for the 5.10 Community website it was spring; and you know Scotland, the weather is nothing if it is not erratic, it was super hot. The conditions were beyond what you would want for hard sending but it was fabulous to get the warmth after a long cold winter spent indoors working my socks off at TCA Glasgow.
