Mark: Who’s up for a climb tomorrow

Me: Yes, something easy though as my skins worn out from personal climbing and teaching rock courses.

Mark: Meet in Pete’s Eat cafe at 10:00

Mark: Oh, we’ve got David Simmonite coming along too.  He’s taking shots for a few articles coming up in Climber Magazine.

Me: Ah, poor skin.  Oh well…!

So, after casually signing up for a few routes in the sun, we ended up doing four or five fantastic climbs and hidden gems.  Often doing the moves 3 or 4 times from different angles and pulling hugely unnecessary shapes to look inspiring for the camera.

The routes will all be described in the article probably out in July… well worth looking up and heading out with them on a ticklist.  T
