After a few lectures throughout the winter, the last couple of weeks saw me touring England with Rob Greenwood delivering a lecture about Alpine Climbing for the BMC. Rob was awesome to work with and as the lectures were evening slots, we managed to grab plenty of rockclimbing in between the venues. As I hadn’t climbed for months this was ace and thankfully Rob showed me no mercy. Most of the first week was a bit wet and so we found ourselves at Malham Cove in between Ambleside, Harrogate and Liverpool….a good kick start for me.

The second week had us climbing in Avon on the way to Exeter, Cheddar Gorge on the way to London and finally Wintour’s Leap on the way to Coventry. This often meant E5 before mid morning, then a long drive with heavy arms….not something I’m too familiar with!

So, back up to speed with the cragging. Thanks Rob for the patience.

The lectures went down well I think. Thanks to all the hosts and everyone who came along too. Special thanks to Becky McGovern at the BMC for setting it all up so well.
