Climbing in the cold

So it's fair to say it's been a long time since I last put up a post. It's not that I've not been doing nothing, it's that I've done less and then not documented it. My bad! Maybe on the downtime afforded by the social lockdown, I will have time to post a few updates.... Continue Reading →

Wye did we avoid the Wye Valley?

Jess and me have been climbing together for nearly ten years and although there has been ample opportunity to climb at the Wye Valley, we have avoided it. I know the main reason is that everyone we talk to about it is quite negative about things, a common phrase I've heard is that people 'don't... Continue Reading →

It has taken me so long to write about this weekend caving that I've already posted about our first day in Dan-yr-Ogaf, whilst I catch up with writing. To be honest I've had a couple of lazy week/weekends and therefore should have had these posted weeks ago, but for some reason I've not got round... Continue Reading →

Dan-yr-Ogaf

These caves are bigger than those found in the Mendips, and oftenl house some beautiful features that are separated by some really sporting caving. The first cave was Dan-yr-Ogaf, a showcave with dinosaurs and who knows what else, but it also... Continue Reading →

Unfortunately, a trip to Egypt is often followed by what's politely called an upset tummy (AKA the runs…). So we set off in the van, with the risk... Continue Reading →

Chesil Cove I have been trying to dive Chesil all year, but being based in Brighton makes this a pretty long haul trip. I finally... Continue Reading →

Diving in Hurghada, Egypt

I've been diving for just short of ten years, and this was the first trip where I have seen a coral reef, and I have to say I thought if was amazing. There is just so much life in one area that you can struggle to take it all in, the colours, shapes, formations, all... Continue Reading →

UK Scuba Season Round Up 1!

Diving this year has so far been a mixed bag! From zero visibility to 10 metres or more, from perfectly long slacks to a non stop current throughout. You get the picture, it's been a bit unknown, and this is why I'm posting this post now as once again the shuttle boats have been cancelled... Continue Reading →
