Climbing Courses and Personal Fun!
So now we've officially reached autumn, but the weather seems to be improving, so as far as I'm concerned summer is here again! The last couple of weeks have been busy, despite the unsettled weather (how British do I sound?! - No more talk about weather...).
With the school summer holidays, I've been doing a lot of work with family groups, interspersed with some adult guiding and skills courses.
On Monday I had a cool day out personal climbing with Paul Donnithorne, exploring an unclimbed sea stack around 20m high, coming away with three new routes. After that, we caught up with Dave Linnet, Sarah-Jane and Sachor and climbed the wonderful Isambard's Kingdom, on The Green Bridge of Wales. Great route but a little crumbly at the top...
Yesterday I was out climbing with Emma Alsford for the first time which was really cool. She's been a pioneering climber on the sea cliffs of Pembroke for many years, and what she does't know about climbing here isn't worth knowing! We first went to St. Govan's East, then headed for a last route at St. Govan's Main Cliff. The weather was unexpectedly cloudy (hang on, I promised not to mention the weather again - what can I say, I'm British...) Thanks Emma for a great fun day out.
